Aspire and RHS Garden Bridgewater mark Dementia Action Week with a ‘Forget Me Not’ celebration

Swinton-based Aspire Care and Support, are partnering with RHS Gardens Bridgewater to host a ‘Forget Me Not’ dementia memorial event, to mark Dementia Action Week, on Tuesday 14th May.

Starting at 11.30 am, guests are invited to join a free forget me not seed planting activity, before a short service held in the grounds of the wellbeing garden. The forget me not flower is a symbol of remembrance and is often associated with Dementia, blooming year after year to give a gentle reminder of those no longer with us.

Guests from Aspire, Reverand Karen Owen and carers will recite reflective readings, before a two-minute silence to remember loved ones lost to, or living with, dementia. Visitors will then be able to enjoy the rest of the gardens and facilities for free.

Aspire specialises in supporting people with Dementia and their families, as well as those with learning difficulties or complex needs. It has a specialist Dementia Day Service hub and a Dementia Friendly cafe at the Humphrey Booth Resource Centre in Swinton, where it hosts a wide range of daily activities that are open to all.

Entry is free and is open to anyone who would like to attend.

Please email or call 0161 6077100 for more information.
