Proposal Details: Memory Matters Activity Club in Topsham Devon. It is a social day that is stimulating, fun and gives an opportunity to spend time with others in the same situation.All our clubs are run by experienced Cognitive Stimulation Therapy facilitators and supported by trained volunteers.Our aims are to exercise the brain and body and promote brain fitness. Our clubs are based on the principles of cognitive stimulation therapy. (CST)Club members are involved in the planning of the themes and content of sessions and can be involved in as much or as little of the day to day running of the club eg. making drinks, cooking, washing up etc. Club members are encouraged to work as part of the team as we promote a 'co-active' community feel. I.e. doing things together! The day runs from 10am to 4pm.
