" I first started Tai Chi to help my husband with his dementia. I now find that I do Tai Chi to help reduce my risk of getting dementia. Tai Chi helps me focus the mind and relax my body whilst helping with my balance.  It is also sociable and a good way of meeting new people including John, the instructor and staff who are all friendly and knowledgeable.

Supporting those with dementia and their carers

Developing dementia can feel confusing, lonely and very isolating. Plus, your partner often takes on a new responsibility as a carer which can cause strains within relationships.

The Isbourne, along with tutor John Thorne, have created a space where people with dementia and their carers become equals again as they learn a sequence of simple tai-chi movements over the course of 8 weeks.
