Registered Charity Number: 1172716
PramaLife is a Dorset charity (1172716) that supports isolated older people in Dorset, by providing a wide range of activities and opportunities.
Our vision is 'a world where no-one is unfairly disadvantaged or excluded because of age or infirmity and where every person can enjoy life'. We provide support to individuals within communities, to enhance the advancement of health, alleviate isolation and loneliness and to 'slow down the slide into dependency'. We know that older people want to remain independent in their own homes but often need help building resilience. Our community outreach activities help to reduce individuals' reliance on statutory services and makes them more able to cope with periods of transition and change, such as a decline in heath, loneliness and isolation, the effects of ageing, or a bereavement.
Our very popular “Pop-In Social Clubs” for elderly people in the community, are all run on a weekly basis in existing community and church halls. The clubs are run by volunteers and provide social afternoons, most of which include games such as jigsaws, puzzles, quizzes, bingo, music, discussion and refreshments.
Memory Lane Groups. We run these popular groups, led by a trained dementia worker, supported by volunteers on a weekly basis. These provide a stimulating environment for
people suffering with memory loss or dementia. The groups provide stimulating social activities involving reminiscence discussions, pictures, singing and music around different
themes such as weather, jobs and colours. We also have a specific group for sharing memories of playing and watching sports.
Carers Groups offer the opportunity to sit and talk over a cup of tea, to others who may be in a similar situation to others in the room. These groups have speakers on a regular basis as well as holding and distributing a wide range of information on issues affecting carers. We promote The Carers Card which gives access to reductions in the cost of Utility Bills, Council Tax and other services and activities.
