Silver Travel Advisor Partner - Dementia Adventure
People living with dementia can often feel that holidays, travel and outdoor activity are things that are no longer available to them. Dementia Adventure specialise in designing and delivering small-group short breaks and holidays for people living with dementia, their partners, family, friends or carer to enjoy together.
All travel, tickets, accommodation and itinerary are arranged for you and each couple is supported by a trained Dementia Adventure team member throughout the break – an extra pair of hands for you and your carer to help with as little or as much as you require.
We ask that people living with dementia come with someone who knows them well. It could be your partner or main carer but it could also be a friend or relative. Grown up children accompanying their parent on holiday often works very well. Dementia Adventure can also arrange for professional carers to join you if required.
We have a selection of ‘off-the-shelf’ breaks that we operate throughout the year, with fully designed itinerary, trips and activities. All of our accommodation is high quality and dementia-friendly. Most Dementia Adventure breaks are suitable for wheelchair users and people with limited mobility, but please do ask us about the suitability of each trip. We also design bespoke breaks to suit individual needs – from weekends to more substantial holidays. We cover destinations throughout the UK and Europe.
Dementia Adventure is an award winning social enterprise and registered charity committed to helping people living with dementia to get outdoors, connect with nature, themselves and their community, and retain a sense of adventure in their lives.
Dementia Adventure clients Ron and Wendy Bibby have been on several supported holidays since Ron was diagnosed with dementia in 2010. Wendy tells their story.
Dementia Adventure have holidays to well-loved destinations, from Cornwall, Devon and the Isle of Wight in the South, to the Lake District and Northumberland in the North. Of course, we’ve not forgotten popular favourites such as Norfolk, Maldon Sailing and Yorkshire too. We’re very pleased to have added a new destination for this summer – in the garden of England – Kent. Evidence has shown our holidays increase the well-being of both the person with dementia and their partner or carer during and after the holiday – a great alternative to traditional respite.
