• Coordinating a programme of projects an action throughout the community

    It’s clear to anyone who scopes Rossendale’s care profile and provision that there are numerous programmes and support activities, both within the health and social care sectors of the borough and those provided on a voluntary basis dealing with the people living with dementia and their carers.

    These are some of the existing local projects and activities available to people living with dementia and / or their carers:

    Dementia Café

    Rossendale Memory Choir

    Greenhouses project

    Peace of Mind planning

    Art classes at Jubilee Court, Helmshore

    Flower arranging for care homes

    Reminiscence box projects

    However this is the area that needs greater integration and vision from the community of Rossendale. At page xx you will find a list of projects we will facilitate. This presents a huge challenge not only to all involved with this initiative but to everyone in Rossendale.

    Arts Group

    The Jubilee Court Arts Class is based at Jubilee Court, Jubilee Road, Haslingden where you will find a warm and welcoming atmosphere . The classes are held every Wednesday afternoon, between 2.00pm and 4.00pm.

    You will be helped to learn to paint and draw with a dedicated Arts Co-ordinator and there’s a small cost of £3.00 per person per visit. Please note – this is not a respite event.

    Free refreshments are available, and level access facilities. Contact 01706 830170 for further information.

    New Intergenerational project

    Green Vale Homes and Bacup and Rawtenstall Grammar School are working on a new initiative to gather people’s memories of Rossendale.

    The students will work with the Home’s residents and tenants and capture the memories on film and this will provide additional access to local social history to complement the growing amount of material that is available elsewhere in the Valley. It will also be used in Reminiscence events that will be provided through Dementia Friendly Rossendale. Watch this space for more details.
