  1. dear Anthony,
    I love what you are doing for people with dementia.
    I worked with people with dementia for 17 years, within a resource environment .residents came for assessment and respite .Nobody stayed permanently.
    I too ran sessions for ex golfers and non golfers. If a new person came into our unit I asked them or a relative if they had played golf .Some had not picked a club up for 3 years .
    I took them in the garden set up a driving net and asked them to start swinging Their swing soon returned.
    I took a lady for a few holes at a local club”.I was her eyes” as she had forgotten where the ball had gone after she had hit it, Her family were over the moon for this input.
    Please keep up this good work.

      All the very best
