Activity: The Greenwood Club, run by Dorset Forest Schools, aims to provide positive shared experiences/memories for those individuals living with dementia and their amazing carers or partners. The group learn green woodworking techniques, rural crafts and cooking outdoors in a relaxing woodland environment.
A typical session would include:
1. Meeting new friends and sharing yummy cake
2. Collecting wood, lighting fire for snack time)
3. Activities- there is always a choice of activities to do either independently or with carer.
4. Reflection time around fire circle or on a walk (review what’s been achieved, how the project could develop).
All activities are designed to provide small achievable steps. This allows individuals to gain a sense of achievement, which leads to increased motivation, self confidence and independence.
