John has been attending the Butterflies in east Hull since 2012 and now also attends the Central Butterflies group. John and his wife attend everything we offer and he hates to stay at home.
John has Lewy Body Dementia which has had a great effect on his vision. He has always loved the outdoors, both walking and cycling.
But both these are now difficult for him because of his problems with visual perception and spacial awareness. However, with the support of our staff and volunteers John now leads our monthly walking group.
We are currently supporting John to devise some dementia-friendly guided walks in Hull in partnership with a local historian in preparation for the City of Culture events planned for 2017.Return to Case Studies
