Dementia Christmas Gathering put smiles on faces this Christmas

21 December 2020

Tranmere Rovers in the Community hosted a socially distanced Christmas gathering for the dementia group. 

 

The event was held at Prenton Park, and participants were able to take part in a quiz, bingo and they received a video message from Club captain, Scott Davies, to wish them all a happy holidays. They also took part in a singalong, which is sponsored by AmaSing.

 

The gathering, which also is aligned to TRIC's ongoing Tackling Loneliness Together project, took place last Thursday afternoon with ten participants in attendance and they all received a food hamper from the Club. 

 

Two of those, Silvia, and her husband, Eddie, explained why they loved coming and the positive impact the dementia group has made on their lives.

 

"We love coming here, the atmosphere on Thursday afternoon was lovely and everyone is so friendly.

 

"Shirley from Tranmere Rovers in the Community keeps ringing us to check how we are. They have come round to the house and sat in the garden too. 

 

"Her, Steve Williams and the rest of the staff have been brilliant. I tell everybody, even my doctor, about Tranmere Rovers because what they do is so lovely.

 

"My husband doesn't understand what is going on at any time, day or night, and if I tell him where we are going, he will ask but if I say we are going to see Shirley, he says ok.

 

"It is great company, and we have a great laugh. When I go home, I feel as though I have been out for the day. We go to other groups but it is not the same as here, everyone is just so nice and we get on so well."
