Rutland Reminders is a local group of dedicated Volunteers, formed in 2010, for people with dementia and their carers. We meet monthly to sing old, well-loved songs with refreshments afterwards to chat.
On the third Tuesday of each month we meet in Oakham; on the second Tuesday each month we visit Uppingham, and on fourth Tuesdays we have a variety of meetings: Training Days; Management Committee Meetings; Singsongs for Volunteers; and our AGM in June.
We do not offer advice; rather we listen carefully, and try to respond appropriately. Our Guests with dementia come from all parts of Rutland, England’s smallest county. We are very mindful that there are over 800 people with dementia in our county population of 35,000 and we reach out to all wherever possible.
