Purpose Age UK Derby and Derbyshire (AUKDD) exists for the benefit and wellbeing of older
people in Derbyshire. We
believe all older people should have the opportunity to Love Later Life.

In everything we do we seek to make a positive difference
to older people’s lives. Our work can touch lives directly through practical
help and support to carers and older people. We seek to influence services
which affect older people’s quality of life. We take care to value diversity
and include and involve people from all communities.
Services Day services include three day care settings, specialist dementia care activity sessions and social
groups.
Health and Wellbeing services include delivering a falls prevention service, community based footcare, classes and activity sessions and befriending to reduce the effects of social isolation and loneliness.
Information and support services including a comprehensive information and advice service, advocacy, first contact signposting and an information roadshow.
Learning and support services to help tackle barriers such as IT, and looking at the experience of retirement, caring and being a grandparent.
Details of individual services and short-term projects are available on our website.

Memory Lane Service
Wednesday 10am-12pm at Blackwell Community Centre, and Wednesday 1-3pm at Walton Village Society. Each of these will be running weekly from the 8th of February. The Memory Lane service provides friendly and inclusive sessions for older members of the community, supporting physical and mental wellbeing through creative activities, social opportunities, appropriate physical activity (delivered by a qualified Chair Based Exercise instructor) and reminiscence. The content of the sessions is user-led, and all groups are relaxed and dementia friendly. The cost is £2 per 2 hour session, including refreshments.
