The Fylde Coast Dementia Hub offers a large range of information and guidance, delivered in partnership with many organisations and individuals alike. The Hub is a unique, community based service with open access to residents with dementia, their families, friends and carers, as well as anyone who may be worried about their memory. A wide range of professional people and organisations are on hand to offer help and advice.
The Fylde Coast Dementia Hub takes place on the last Friday of the month, between 1pm and 3pm, at various venues across the region (see below for the Calendar of dates, talks and venues).
Made In Haslingden is a small charity whose aim is to provide regular sessions to which members of the community of Haslingden and beyond can come to undertake meaningful craft-based activities.
We hope that by bringing members of the community together, they will be able to share skills and learn new skills, such as knitting, sewing, crochet, toy making and simple carpentry.
We aim to create sensory items for other members of the community living with dementia or other conditions, who may benefit from the items we make. These may be Twiddlemuffs, fidget buddies, sensory aprons, activity boards, sensory toys and animals or other sensory items - the only limit is our imagination!
Our difference is that we make bespoke items for individuals. Made In Haslingden works with people living with dementia, their carers and Care Homes to establish individual details such as favourite colours, previous occupation, hobbies; which can then be incorporated into a bespoke sensory item. This is done from past and current life story.http://www.madeinhaslingden.org
Freshers cafés offer a friendly, relaxed and welcoming setting where people living with early onset neurological conditions such as dementia, Parkinson’s, MND, MS, Huntington’s etc, and their families and friends, can drop in for a chat, peer support and information.

The Memory Cafe meets in Garstang Library on the first Wednesday of the month from 10am until noon and the third Monday in the month from 2pm until 4pm.
This is a totally free service for Carers and those living with Dementia.
We have many varied activities including craft, music, quizzes and visiting speakers. We are working with the University of Lancaster Dementia research team who visit regularly. We have just joined forces with the Garstang in Bloom team to start a gardening activity.
I am personally working towards making Garstang a Dementia Friendly Town.
