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 based at the Torch Centre in Hexham, with sessions on Mondays and Wednesdays at 2-4pm.
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.
Exciting new website coming soon!
It will be fully responsive and carry up to date news and activity information. If you can’t find what you need on our faithful old site please don’t hesitate to call.
Coronavirus Update, 17.03.20
With regret following government advice we feel we have no choice but to temporarily close Chrysalis Club sessions. This is the first time we have had to do this in 11 years and we do not take the decision lightly. Indeed the co-ordinator, volunteers, tutors and trustees will also miss Chrysalis greatly.
However, as always, our members are our first priority and we realise how much they will miss our happy family. We are therefore going to do our best to prevent isolation by emailing quizzes games etc and bring out the competitive spirit! We are in the early stages of organising this but it could be good fun planning it! Please let us know if you have any ideas.
Stay safe and well and we look forward to welcoming you back as soon as possible - what a party that will be!!
