Life And Chimes

Pompey in the Community helping those with dementia

4 June 2019

Life and Chimes

Pompey in the Community’s ‘Life and Chimes’ project works with people living with – or at risk of developing – dementia and those who feel socially isolated.

The group – which recently celebrated its fourth birthday – meet once a week and run visits to local theatres, the cinema, bowling alleys and the dockyard.

There are also singing groups and guest speakers including Age UK, Hampshire Fire & Rescue and Alzheimer’s Society.

Pompey in the Community work closely with care homes, GP services and dementia-focused charities, who refer people to them on a regular basis.

To meet the demand, they also require additional funding to increase the number of sessions offered to people living with dementia in Portsmouth and the surrounding areas.
