They mix with others, stops them from feeling lonely…everybody mixing together and getting along with each other.
It shows them that they can actually do it.
Confidence…it is only now I am starting to find it after all those years [of working in the home], after being on the courses [DementiaGo’s workshops].
……the people who had gone to the DementiaGo with him, they had such a good time they were talking about it for long and they used to say ‘do you remember that day we went to the DementiaGo’ and ‘do you remember this’ and ‘do you remember that … Oh for months after they were still bringing the subject up to people who were here, they kept collecting memories from the day because he was going around with his medal.
They become a part of the community as well actually, you know, they feel more normal I would say…they are not just old people are they, they are people.
