Chrysalis at Tynedale

Welcome to Chrysalis at Tynedale

Chrysalis at Tynedale is a club for people with dementia and memory problems (who we call the Members). The club includes their families and friends. Based at the Torch Centre in Hexham, Northumberland, it is run entirely by trained volunteers.
Chrysalis organises a large range of activities which, because of the volunteers’ support, enables each member to participate fully in them. Family and friends can join in the activity, or leave the member to enjoy the class with the rest of the group, while they have some time to themselves.

For family members

If someone you care about has memory problems, you're welcome to come along to our monthly family members' support group. It's a chance to talk about your own experiences and feelings, or just listen to those of people in a similar situation. It can be a big help! Sessions are on the first Wednesday of every month at 2.15, while one of our activities is running, so the person you care for can be enjoying themselves at the same time. 

Help us get it right

If you've been in touch with Chrysalis at any time, we see you as a member. Even if you tend not to come along to Chrysalis activities - for whatever reason - we'd still like to support you. Please take a very few minutes to fill in our survey, either for yourself or on behalf of someone else. Thank you :-)

Fundraising update

We had a great time with our fundraising stall at the Puffing Billy steam festival recently, raising £200. Thanks to Julie and all our other brilliant supporters!

The emergency services are encouraging us all to help them identify our nearest and dearest in our mobile phone contact lists. Make sure you - and those closest to you - save the number you'd want them to call in case of an emergency as ICE. That way, they'll know who to call if you're not able to explain it yourself. 

A great read, with fantastic pictures showing just how much fun we have
