Do you want your own bespoke Memory Chest or reminiscence workshop?

After MemoryScapes success over the past few months, KWMC has decided to create bespoke memory chests and reminiscence workshops for local community groups. So, if you work for an organisation that supports people with dementia, or you know a group of older people or young people who might be interested in exploring the history of Bristol through a sensory reminiscence experience, please get in touch with me. lucinda.thelwell@kwmc.org.uk, 01179030444

New Wellbeing app being trialled at KWMC

App developers 500 More are trialling their new walking wellbeing app 'Walking Safari' with the staff at KWMC. Hopefully it will boost our walking meetings and get some fun competition going amongst staff. I'm happy to say that I am at the top of the leaderboard!

Posture checks at KWMC as part of our Wellbeing Charter

Today we have had free posture checks and a workshop on healthy posture from the amazing team at Willow Chiropractic. By using a fab new app they can analyse our weak spots and give us advice on how to improve them, and we can sign up to a free in depth assessment at their local clinic. Great day, thanks Willow!
