Dementia Adventure are a registered charity dedicated to supporting people with dementia to get outdoors, connect with nature, themselves and their community, and retain a sense of adventure in their lives.
By raising funds we can significantly reduce the cost of our fully supported dementia holidays and could make a holiday possible for somebody who might otherwise not be able to afford to take a break. We can also provide free dementia training for family carers and do research into the benefits of outdoor activity.
Through our training and consultancy services we work with other organisations to help equip them with the evidence, skills and confidence to give people greater choices and live better with dementia.
Our work is grounded in research and we collaborate with academic institutions and the public sector to advance and contribute to the growing evidence-base for being physically active within nature and the benefits it brings to people living with dementia.
By focusing on what people can do, rather than what they can’t, we support them to get outdoors, connect with nature, themselves and their community. Since 2009 we have trained thousands of individuals and organised many supported dementia holidays—making a huge difference to people with dementia and their carers.

Our guests report to us frequently of the benefits they receive from a MindforYou supported holiday. From the formation of fantastic new friendships with like minded people, creating support networks that last until way after the holiday. To increased self confidence amongst carers and carees, telling us how they have become more involved with their family and the community since returning back home, and even start trying new things. Finally better sleep and eating habits, some even telling us how they manage to sleep better than they do at home, and even reducing medication!
