Dementia Adventure Enjoy Kielder Holiday

People living with dementia can often feel that holidays, travel and outdoor activity are things that are no longer available to them. Calvert Trust Kielder have been working with Dementia Adventure who specialise in designing and delivering small group short breaks and holidays for people living with dementia, their partners, family, friends or carer to enjoy together.

Check out this short film from their recent holiday at the centre:


Lucy Harding, Operations Director, Dementia Adventure said:

"Our holidays at Calvert Trust Kielder have always been successful and have had a positive effect on both the person living with dementia and their carer. The location is beautiful and creates great opportunities for all involved to get outside in to nature. We have observed that those with dementia have become more socially and physically confident during their stay.

The team have made us feel very welcome and looked after us well. We are now really looking forward to our next break at Calvert Trust Kielder in September.”
