COGS Club every Friday

every Friday 10 am to 3 pm.
A club for people with mild dementia.

A COGS session consists of a full day of activity, stimulation, music and fun for a person with mild dementia or memory-loss problems.
The weekly sessions last for as long as a member can benefit.

COGS provides the opportunity for them to recall or develop new skills in activities and to facilitate transfer of these skills to activities at home.

COGS also provides the family/carer with a day’s respite.

The criteria for joining the club is that each member is able to participate actively in the activities, is self-caring and has the willingness to be part of the group.
