Volunteers from Hogan Lovells are hosting a Board Game Café social event once a month at St Luke’s community centre. Volunteers will serve tea/coffee and cake to members and actively encourage them to participate in the board games. Each of the games have been specifically designed to help reduce the signs of dementia and improve brain and memory capacity. Some are also beneficial for practising key motor skills. The degree of difficulty differs from game to game and some are designed for pairs and others for groups of individuals. This programme will focus on tackling isolation in the elderly as well as trying to keep dementia at bay for as long as possible.

The sessions run on the first Tuesday of every month from 1.30 – 3pm and will be hosted at St Luke’s community centre.  For details, call Jane/ John – 020 7549 8179/8 or email jspong@slpt.org.uk
