Creating a Relaxing Atmosphere for Family Visits with Dementia
Hosting a family visit when someone with dementia has difficulty communicating can be challenging. However, relaxed social events such as wine and cheese nights can be helpful. Such gatherings bring loved ones together and provide plenty of fun topics to discuss.

To set the right mood, we suggest having calming entertainment such as a jazz singer or pianist. Here's what you'll need:
1. A variety of wines and cheeses including red and white wines, sparkling and non-sparkling, as well as non-alcoholic drinks.
2. Card and a black marker pen
3. Crackers, grapes, and melon

Here's how you can organize the event:
1. Pick a date and schedule the entertainment.
2. Set up the room by clearing it and arranging the food and drinks on tables.
3. Label the cheeses and suggest which wine pairs best with each one.
4. As guests arrive, offer them a glass of sparkling wine.
5. We recommend taking requests for wine and suggesting that guests choose their cheeses.
6. Ensure that everyone feels included and has someone to talk to.

Here's a top tip: Do some research to determine the best wine and cheese pairings. Here are a few suggestions to get you started:
1. Sauvignon Blanc with Goats Cheese
2. Chardonnay with Camembert or Brie
3. Merlot paired with a strong Cheddar or Manchego
4. Cabernet Sauvignon with a Pecorino or aged Gouda
5. Port with Stilton
In summary, hosting a wine and cheese night can be a great way to bring families together and create a relaxed and enjoyable atmosphere. By following the steps outlined above and doing some research, you can ensure that everyone has a good time.
