“My Mum was diagnosed with dementia in 2007. As a family, we spent lots of time together, with Mum and Dad spending as much time as they could with their grandchildren, Emma and Ben, and a diagnosis of dementia wasn’t going to change this. We continued to do things together, learning every step of the way about dementia. This is where the idea for MindforYou was created.
In 2014 I changed my focus from a Scientist to support families living with dementia and established MindforYou. Since then we have taken around 1000 guests on 129 holidays. In 2020 we established daily Zoom sessions and monthly activity packs to help families living with dementia during the COVID-19 pandemic.
None of the above would have been possible without our wonderful, compassionate staff, who continually go above and beyond to help our dementia community.
I hope you and your family enjoy doing some of these things together.“
