Free activities to help Greater Manchester’s older residents through the winter

There are now hundreds of free activities on offer to help older Greater Manchester residents through the winter, especially those living with dementia. The Greater Moments app has been developed by Social Sense and Hitch Marketing as part of Dementia United, Greater Manchester’s programme for dementia.

The aim of the app is to bring local services, activities and social experiences together in one place, enabling greater connection throughout communities and improved wellbeing for carers and those with long term conditions. The activities will create fun and stimulating experiences in homes and care settings whilst, the weekly drop-in zoom sessions will connect professionals and family members who can share experiences, ideas and what is working well to maintain a positive mood.
