Treasured Moments

It’s a wonderful thing to love someone and to look after them. But it’s also important and healthy to look after yourself.  That’s why Revitalise offers specialist Treasured Moments weeks for people with Alzheimer’s or dementia and their companions.

Why choose Revitalise for an Alzheimer’s or dementia holiday?

For 60 years we have provided fun and relaxing respite holidays for disabled adults and carers, including those with Dementia. We know that breaks are vital for wellbeing and we believe everyone should be able to take a break.

Our respite holidays offer something entirely unique. We are the only charity in the UK that provides a proper holiday experience combined with expert care support. We personalise our service to each guest and their individual care needs.

Our Treasured Moments for 2024

Spring Treasured Moments – from 18 to 24 March

Autumn Treasured Moments – from 23 to 29 September

include full-board hospitality, live entertainment and daily activities

Every year we provide special weeks, called Treasured Moments, for people with Alzheimer’s and other types of dementia to take with their loved ones. The aim of these breaks is simple: to create a supportive but stimulating environment where carers and their loved ones can rediscover a loving connection as husband and wife, father and daughter, mother and son, while we take on the caring duties.

Our centres are purpose-built and fully-accessible and every aspect of your holiday is tailored to your loved one’s needs. The relaxed settings and newly-refurbished rooms provide the perfect place to get away from it all. But it is our friendly and expert holiday care team and nurses that set our holidays apart: at Revitalise, you can rest assured that your loved one will be in safe hands.

Hear from our Treasured Moments guests

“Thinking back to the first time we went and the first day it seemed all the other carers all knew each other. But then by the end of the first day I felt like part of the Sandpipers family. The support of meeting other carers is really great. You get so much from spending time with other carers. There’s no way John could voice his opinion, but he’s very smiley and you can see it on his face when the young volunteers chat with him. I know he loves it.”

— Jean, wife of Revitalise guest Jon who has vascular dementia
