Our award-winning Dementia Project is delighted to announce that in October, MacIntyre will be holding the very first Memories & Miles events.
To be held in Milton Keynes, Warrington, and Chesterfield; Memories & Miles is a chance to celebrate loved ones with Dementia and memory loss by completing a fully accessible, one-mile course.
Nicola Payne, MacIntyre’s Dementia Project Officer said:
“This is a great chance to meet people that may have gone through similar experiences. It’s an opportunity to walk and talk together and also learn about Dementia too.”
Sarah Ormston, MacIntyre’s Specialist Health Advisor & Dementia Project Manager added:
The launch of our new MacIntyre Memories and Miles is a very exciting time for us as a Dementia Project Team. We created these events because we wanted the opportunity for lots of family, friends, staff, and people supported to all come together with one shared mission – to not feel alone. We are all in this together. Whether you know someone that lives with dementia, live with dementia yourself, or are a loved one of someone that lives with dementia; there is a network of support.
Our Memories and Miles will be fully accessible course one-mile course and we have exciting planned activities along the route, which you are welcome to join in on, or if you prefer a little calm and quiet, you can keep moving and enjoy watching all the activities from a distance. Whatever your reason is for taking part, I hope you can join us and encourage friends, family and everyone you know to join us too. It really will be a walk to remember.’
