Alzheimer's Support founded Movement for the Mind in 2011 and we now have five groups up and running in Wiltshire. The popular meetings combine gentle exercise, known to be enormously beneficial for people living with dementia, with reminiscence and plenty of social interaction. The groups are designed for people living with dementia and family carers to enjoy together.

Volunteers are essential to the smooth running of the groups. You'll be part of a small team who will get the room ready and clear away, take part alongside group members in a range of gentle exercises or dance, offer a friendly welcome, serve refreshments or chat to members during social time. A member of Alzheimer's Support staff is present at all groups, as well as the professional facilitator who leads the sessions.

Our groups meet fortnightly and volunteer commitment can be as little as one session each month
