Dementia Adventure specialise in designing and delivering small group short breaks and holidays for people living with dementia and their carer to enjoy together.
They are an alternative to traditional respite in that they enable people living with dementia to get outdoors, connect with nature, themselves and their community, and retain a sense of adventure in their lives.
All travel, tickets, accommodation and itinerary are arranged for you and each couple is supported by a Dementia Adventure team member—an extra pair of hands for you and your carer to help with as little or as much as you require.
We ask that people living with dementia come with someone who knows them well. It could be your partner or main carer but it could also be a friend or relative. Grown up children taking their parent on holiday often works very well.
We have a selection of ‘off-the-peg’ breaks that we run throughout the year, with fully designed itinerary, trips, activities and high quality dementia-friendly accommodation. We also design bespoke breaks to suit your individual needs. We cover destinations throughout the UK and Europe.

We often get asked about Travel Insurance. Click here to go through to Free Spirit - a specialist travel insurance provider for people with medical conditions and no age limits.
If you would like to join us as a volunteer helper on one of our adventures, then please download the volunteer application form here. You will be CRB (DBS) checked and receive full training. The idea is that you will support a couple living with dementia on their holiday, but will not be expected to provide personal care. You will be provided with bed and board for the time away and your travel expenses to and from the holiday will be covered.
Please register your interest by calling 01245 237548, or email us. We will happily answer any questions you may have about our adventures.
