About Us

Dementia Active Oxfordshire

Dementia Active is a community interest, not for profit company with an established track record in providing social activity groups for people who have a diagnosis of dementia. 

Dementia is an illness which can isolate people from former friends.  The value of spending time with others who can share this sense of isolation cannot be overestimated: 


● We aim to create a sense of community where no one need feel apologetic or uncomfortable about not being able to do those things which in the past would have been straightforward.


● Conversation is encouraged - both socially, particularly when people arrive but also in more structured reminiscence sessions.


● Group activities are opportunities to be playful.


● The benefits overall are raised energy levels and improved cognition.


We offer a wide range of activities, for instance: topical discussions, gentle exercise, dancing, arts and crafts and every few weeks - a professional entertainer. A buffet style lunch with hot snacks is provided as well as drinks and biscuits throughout the day. Groups are small and have a high staffing to members ratio.

We are also able to offer local transport to and from sessions for those who need it - for just a £4 contribution to the volunteer driver.



What you need to bring?

We would need you to bring any products that you would usually need during the day,  e.g incontinence pads,  wipes, etc. The online form that you complete whilst booking your sessions will give us an insight to any personal care needs. 

There is a separate room in the venue available for personal care.

Experience and Support

We understand that not one activity works for all.  We will take the time to get to know our Clients and develop individualised activities that fits their specific needs, over the sessions we will be running.
