Join our tribe. Become a Memory Matters Fellow!
Kate & Laura feel just like you.
For the last ten years, the award-winning team at Memory Matters have been successful in making a difference and creating positive change for those living with dementia and we are ready to help you do this too with our Memory Matters Fellowship.
After ten years of research and development, we are ready to help you to run Memory Matters Workshops in your community and to gain great outcomes for people living with dementia in your community.
The proven, evidence-based outcomes for those living with dementia in the Fellowship Workshops are:
- Reduced loneliness.
- Slow the progression of dementia.
- Living well for longer.
- Increased quality of life.
- Increased thinking skills.
- Access to peer support.
Our Fellowship gives the opportunity for you or your organisation to partner with ours. We take care of all the content, planning and make evaluating your outcomes easy, so you can focus on doing what you do best.
Memory Matters Workshops are perfect for both care home environments and community venues and we are set to be working with a broad mixture of organisations and individuals.
Memory Matters Workshops support people to live well with dementia through engagement in meaningful, evidence-based and therapeutic activities and preventative health sessions’ designed to exercise thinking skills and promote preventative health.
Why Team Up with Memory Matters?
Memory Matters is an award-winning and well-respected organisation, founded in 2010 by two qualified nurses, Kate and Laura who champion the importance of Cognitive Stimulation Therapy (CST). “CST should be available to everyone living with mild to moderate dementia in all communities.” (National Institute of Health and Care Excellence).
Despite this, access to CST is sporadic.
In many areas, people with dementia have access to a short course provided by the NHS, however, these are time-limited. Therefore, they are stopped whilst people would still feel the benefit from attending. Those that live in residential or care homes often have no access at all.
We are inviting well-established professionals or organisations in the community to come on board and work with us to ensure all people living with mild to moderate dementia can access these groups.
