Living with Dementia

The Hollies Medical Centre and our neighbouring GP practices have partnered with Voluntary Action Sheffield and the Sheffield Dementia Action Alliance to provide a local, accessible and informal ‘hub’ to pull these organisations together and benefit our patients and carers.

Starting from December the ‘Porter Valley Dementia Café’ will run alternate Thursdays at Bent’s Green Church. There will be tea, coffee and refreshments available and we have plans for guest speakers, activities and the opportunity to meet others affected by Dementia. There will be friendly experts on hand to discuss your challenges and help signpost you to any support you feel you could benefit from.

Have a look at the Dementia Cafe web page for more information.

Beat the Streets

What is Beat the Street?

Beat the Street is a fun, free initiative that will see Sheffield transformed into a giant game!

See how far you can walk, cycle, run, scoot and roll in just 6 weeks. There are great challenges to enjoy and prizes up for grabs.

The game will start on 16 June and end on 28 July 2021.

 
The Hollies Medical Centre have signed up for this along with other GP surgery's in Sheffield. Let the fun begin.
