derbyshire care

Christmas is a wonderful time of year for getting together with family and getting out in your community to enjoy festive events and celebrations. When we, or our family members get older it can become difficult to find events to enjoy the holidays that are relaxed and accommodating. If you or a family member have dementia or diminished mobility there are still plenty of opportunities to get into the spirit in a comfortable and accessible setting. Here are a few of our favourite upcoming activities and events around Derbyshire and Nottinghamshire this Christmas period.
