National disability charity, United Response, is teaming up with Suffolk Museums and Stowmarket Dementia Action Alliance, to host a creative activity day for local people: ‘Living Well in Later Life.’

The event will take place on Thursday14th April at the Museum of East Anglian Life in Stowmarket.

‘Living Well in Later Life’ is an opportunity for people, including those living with dementia, to come along with their partners or carers to enjoy and capture memories through creative activity sessions.

There will be a choice of four sessions and visitors will be able to choose whether to do them in the morning, afternoon or both.

The activities will include photography led by local photographer Albert Robb, music and dance with the Pat Lait Dance School, creative writing led by local poet Dean Parkin and taster exercise 1:1 sessions with Stowmarket Leisure Centre.

There will also be professionals and organisations available to provide information, support and advice on care, health and well-being.

Fiona Palmer, project development manager for United Response, said:

“We look forward to welcoming anyone who’s interested in this event. It will be an opportunity to meet new people and create wonderful memories! We have held similar events in the past, which have been hugely successful and informative for our wider work supporting people to live well in later life.”

The event is open to ALL in the East Anglian area.

The morning sessions will take place from 10am to 12.30pm and the afternoon sessions will take place from 2pm to 4pm.

The cost is £10 per person to take part in the activities, with partners/carers welcome free of charge. The information area where people can meet professionals and organisations will be free to enter.
