Pyaari Yaadein is a bespoke project we developed to work with people from a South Asian Background. We undertake dynamic activities celebrating their rich cultural heritage and embracing British culture.

We encourage physical and mental development in our sessions. On a weekly basis we develop a theme for the group and explore ideas and concepts around these themes relating to a hybrid of South Asian culture and Britishness. We promote full participation in the group, depending on individual ability, however we are an inclusive group that accommodate individuality.

The sessions are  run by trained professionals that are proficient in various South Asian languages and dialects to facilitate ease for the participants. We provide a safe environment for South Asian people living with Dementia and their carers
