Peggy’s Place Scunthorpe @ Peggy's World
May 21 @ 14:00 – 16:00

Peggy’s Place is a safe place for families to attend in North Lincolnshire and West Lindsey, facilitated by specialist support from Dementia Specialist Nurse Tilly Brock.

It is a place to come and share with others in a similar situation and to gain peer support.

People with dementia may like to be involved in an activity session while their carer talks to others so families can come together but have different needs met at the same time.

We meet every Tuesday from 2pm – 4pm at Peggy’s World, 145 Cherry Grove, Ashby, DN16 2TH.
