According to the Alzheimer's Society there are around 850,000 people in the UK with dementia. One in 14 people over 65 will develop dementia, and the condition affects 1 in 6 people over 80.
The number of people with dementia is increasing because people are living longer, and therefore we believe it is our responsibility to ensure our community are aware and understanding of the condition, and that we help those diagnosed to get more out of life through physical activities and social opportunities.
At Mytime Active, we are members of the Bromley Dementia Action Alliance and have committed to providing:
- Dementia Awareness training for staff, members, group exercise instructors and volunteers with a dedicated Mytime Active champion to deliver Dementia Friends sessions.
- Dementia friendly activities with all classes and activities supported by our trained volunteers.
- Dementia friendly facilities, focusing particularly on those being refurbished or new builds.
Our volunteer Primetime Buddies are Dementia friends and offer support and assistance if needed for those living with dementia.
