We're taking part in the #walk1000 miles group challenge, where we will be recording a combined mileage to reach as many miles as possible in 12 months.
We're being inspired by Country Walking Magazine and Virgin Pulse who are providing us with some fitness trackers for people living with dementia.
Please join us on a weekly Zoom meeting every Wednesday at 11am to share pictures and short videos of your walks. It is easy to join Zoom from your phone or computer.
We now have a Facebook page to share pictures of our walks and physical activities: www.facebook.com/deepnotts
Please feel free to register your individual steps here to join the #Walk1000Miles initiative: https://bit.ly/2MizjWQ
On Wednesdays, 11am to 12 noon, we have a Home Fitness Zoom meeting where group members are making films of photo montages of local walks set to music and sharing these. It is also a space where Nature lovers can share pictures and videos of nature when they go for a walk.
We publish the pictures and videos of Nature on our Facebook page and Twitter pages: www.twitter.com/trentdementia and www.twitter.com/deep_notts. So, please feel free to send us pictures and videos of your walks to [email protected]rentdementia.org.uk and we publish them for you.
We talk about physical activities like gardening that we did during the week and try to stay connected and physically active. People living with dementia and their family members/supporters/friends/carers are welcome to join.
Please contact 0115 7484220 or email [email protected] to receive the Zoom link or the phone number & PIN to call into the meeting. You don’t need to have a computer to attend this meeting.
You are responsible for your own safety. Please wear weather-appropriate shoes and clothes and bring refreshments if you need. In case you need support, you are welcome to come with your family member, supporter or carer.
