The Green Pathways For Life project in Scotland is now back in action and keen to get outdoors after lockdown! We are able to deliver 1-2-1 sessions with people living with dementia alongside a family member from the same household, just get in touch to find out more or to inquire about individual sessions.
We work with people living with dementia in Glasgow and Renfrewshire to encourage use and improvement of local green spaces, learning about wildlife, reducing social isolation, improving confidence and empowering people living with dementia to live well through outdoor activities.
Our session activities can be anything from pond dipping, wildlife surveys, arts and crafts, wildlife gardening, creating a pond or bog garden or simply taking a short nature walk in a local green space. Activities and sessions are chosen by the people we work with, their preferences, abilities and the weather (especially important in Scotland!).
Sessions are free and can be arranged for existing groups, families or on a 1-2-1 basis if needed, with carers and family members very welcome to join in. We can work anywhere in Glasgow and Renfrewshire so just let us know what area you’d like sessions to be held and we can arrange this as far as is possible.
Sites, activities and session times are very flexible and are arranged with participants requirements and preferences as the highest priority.
Green Pathways for Life Glasgow is our first project for people with dementia. In 2018 we engaged with over 250 people in care homes, community groups, day centres, allotment sites, and sheltered housing settings.
If you are living with dementia or symptoms of memory loss, are caring for someone who is or would like to know a bit more about the project then please get in touch with our Development Officer, Louise Smith.
