Christmas is a special time for all of us, but it’s especially meaningful for people living with dementia.  For although short-term memory is unreliable, memories of past Christmases, and all it means will be retained in their long term memory.  Christmas practices and celebrations are ingrained so strongly they are almost reminiscence therapy!

In addition, there are activities that families can do that will help boost cognition and faith, and that will be a blessing to everyone involved.

In our Zoom ‘special meeting on December 14th , Revd Roger Hitchings and discuss these Christmas opportunities.
