Welcome to Chrysalis Club Tynedale. We provide Dementia friendly activities and support in Tynedale.
We are a charity that provides an activities club for people living with dementia and ongoing memory problems (our members). It includes their families, friends and support workers. We're are now based at our very own premises at Unit 1, Dene Park, Corbridge Road in Hexham (just along the road from the Torch Centre).
We're managed by volunteers and a part time co-ordinator. We organise a large range of activities where family and friends can join in or we can support the member to enjoy the class while their loved ones have some time to themselves.
We also have a monthly Family Members Support Group. This is a chance for family members to share their experiences and gain valuable information. There's also an informal coffee – and – chat group for family members no longer attending Chrysalis.
