Fun, laughter, activities, reminiscences and caring support!

Welcome to Kennington Memory Club, Oxford, a Day Care Centre opened in 2018 for people living with Dementia. Located in Kennington, a village between Oxford and Abingdon, it serves an area of Oxfordshire that includes Abingdon and surrounding villages, as well as those to the South and West of Oxford.

Kennington Memory Club is a registered charity (no. 1179830).

Our aims are:

  • To provide safe and supportive day care for people with dementia.
  • To allow individual strengths and abilities to flourish.
  • To provide members with the opportunity to exchange memories and opinions.
  • To provide members with the opportunity to take part in stimulating activities tailored to their needs and wishes.
  • To enable members to enjoy the fellowship of shared meals.
  • To give their families respite and the offer of support and advice . We regret that, until the current covid restrictions are lifted, the carers’ group will not be able to meet at the club.

We meet:

On Mondays and Thursdays currently from 9.30 am to 3.00 pm

in Kennington Methodist Church

Upper Road, Kennington, Oxford OX1 5LR

Meals

A hot meal is available, with an alternative if preferred, at a cost of £5 for two courses.

Free tea and coffee is provided on arrival and in the afternoon.

Our Club Sessions

Ours is a small club with a welcoming, family atmosphere.

Our club sessions will run with up to 10 members. With this number it is possible to plan a programme of activities to suit the members present on the day. Also, crucially, with three skilled members of staff and volunteers, the individual attention and support which is so important for people with dementia can be provided and this enables them to be actively involved.

Our club sessions will run with a reduced number of members, so it is easier for newcomers to get to know each other and feel secure. It is also easier with a small group to plan a programme of activities which will suit the members present on the day, and crucially, with three skilled members of staff, it is possible to provide the individual attention and support which is so important for people with dementia, and which enables them to become actively involved.

At lunchtime, our members, and staff eat together, and everyone can join in the conversation.

Our hope is to promote a happy, relaxed atmosphere so that members enjoy their day and go home happy.
