About Us:

People living with dementia and their carers can often feel that holidays, travel and outdoor activity are no longer accessible to them.  Yet there are enormous benefits in staying active and engaging with nature for all of us, including people living with dementia.  In fact, evidence suggests that access to the natural environment can improve physical and mental health and wellbeing and can even delay the progression of the condition.  Over 20,000 people are living with dementia in Essex and with no cure, we need to find better ways to live well with the condition.  

Dementia Adventure specialise in fully supported short breaks and holidays for people living with dementia, their partners, family, friends or carer to enjoy together as an alternative to traditional 'respite'.  We create breaks, suitable for all abilities - focusing on what people can achieve rather what they cannot.

We also provide 'thinking differently about dementia' training for care homes, local authorities and family carers so they can support people with dementia to live well, have access to the ourdoors and continue to do the things they love.

As a charity we depend on people like you. Your support helps us reduce the cost of our fully supported dementia holidays and could make a holiday possible for somebody who might otherwise not be able to afford to take a break. Your support helps us provide free dementia training for family carers and do research into the benefits of outdoor activity.

Thank you for your support and good luck!

Yours sincerely

Mr Neil Mapes, CEO
