Breathing Space

HOOT’s dementia service

Breathing Space is for people who are concerned about their memory, or those who are in the process of obtaining or already have a diagnosis of early stage dementia and a family member, partner, carer or support worker.

You can take part in weekly group sessions (free for people living in Kirklees) where you can meet people, make friends and have fun. Sessions include music, song, movement and visual arts. Absolutely no previous experience is needed. It's a place to revisit forgotten stories, songs and creative skills and explore new and exciting ones.
