Bespoke Holidays

Have you ever wanted to take part in a family holiday but needed more support?

Do you want to join in with a family visit “back home” and help to make it happen?

Would you like to go away with friends you've made at a club or group?


We can help!

We believe that anything is possible with the right amount of support. We offer a bespoke holiday service which is ideal for families or groups of friends who want to go away together. Our holidays are based around there being at least 2 people to support a person living with dementia, a person who knows them well and a person from the Dementia Adventure team.

  • We have a 7-seater vehicle which we can drive, or we can hire an adapted wheelchair access vehicle, or you could drive your own vehicle.

  • We can organise train tickets or flights if you need to go further afield. We have a partnership with an ABTA and ATOL bonded Tour Operator for international travel.

  • We have an adventure leader who is very experienced with people living with dementia and we have experienced volunteers who are trained and ready to help.

  • We have links to dementia friendly accommodation and can organise an itinerary and activities to suit your wishes.

Do give us a call to discuss your requirements, as far in advance as you can. The cost of a bespoke break will vary depending on the aspects you would like to choose. Please call us for a quote.

Ideas for holidays: 

Wales - Snowdon & Zipworld in the north, beaches in the south, castles in the middle!

New Forest – Ponies and forest walks.

Northern France – Visits to the battlefields or war cemeteries could make a poignant trip.
