We help our ageing population discover how their local golf club can become an integral part of their life. We help them keep physically active, mentally stimulated and socially engaged.
Our pilot projects have proved what a positive impact golf can have on people living with dementia & Parkinson’s disease. They have also proved that it’s never too late to start playing golf – no matter what physical or mental challenges you face in later life.
So far we’ve concentrated on designing & delivering golf sessions for people with dementia & Parkinson’s disease. The sessions have proved an overwhelming success.
As well as helping people keep physically fit, mentally stimulated and social engaged they provided carers with respite support, allowing them to recharge their batteries and catch up with their own lives.
The golf sessions have helped the wider community too by…
- Providing a new primary care service
- Recruiting new volunteers
- Raising awareness about dementia & Parkinson’s disease
- Creating “age-friendly” golf clubs
- Raising the profile of golf as a leisure activity
We help so many people in so many ways – and that’s exactly why it’s such rewarding work.
