Tea dances to mark Dementia Awareness Week
Former patients of a Rotherham hospital which caters for people with dementia and their carers are being invited to a free afternoon tea dance.
Staff at The Woodlands, a unit which cares for people over 65, who have mental health needs, are marking Dementia Awareness Week in May with two 1940s themed afternoon tea dances.
The tea dances will take place on May 22 and May 23 from 1pm until 4pm. There will be music to dance to from the 1940s up to the present day and a number of information stalls to browse around covering mental health conditions and the support available.
Current patients and their carers are also invited to join in.
Organiser Tracey Green, of The Woodlands, said: “Why not come along and help us mark Dementia Awareness Week and at the same time raise awareness of dementia.”
The tea dances will be held in the main reception area at The Woodlands, which is behind Rotherham Hospital, off Moorgate Road, Moorgate, Rotherham.
Simply turn up to join in the fun. Donations welcome.
The Woodlands is run by Rotherham Doncaster and South Humber NHS Foundation Trust (RDaSH).
