Dementia Friendly Walks - Norfolk Easy Ambles
Active Norfolk have produced a range of resources to asist you to help people living with dementia and their carers enjoy walks. The Norfolk Easy Ambles programme, funded by SAIL, a partnership project between Active Norfolk and Norfolk County Council with support from Public Health, aims to stimulate active ageing and less dependence on traditional health and social care services.
The Norfolk Easy Ambles toolkit includes a checklist of things to consider including practical considerations and reminiscence prompts to stimulate memories and conversation. There's also a video explaining the process of mapping a dementia-friendly walk.
The Norfolk Easy Ambles series is a suite of 9 walking routes that have been designed to support people living with dementia and their carers to enjoy an accessible walk, with points of interest and sensory talking points to engage in conversation and stimulate reminiscence.
