What is a Memory Café?

  • A safe, supportive social environment
  • helping people live well with dementia
  • Refreshments, including fresh fruit and cake, are provided

 We aim to provide:

  • somewhere people with memory loss feel welcomed and valued
  • cognitively stimulating activities which are age appropriate and ‘failure-free’
  • opportunities to make new friends and talk over concerns
  • Reminiscence therapy, an effective and enjoyable way to connect with a person who lives with  dementia, helping them manage some of the more distressing symptoms of the illness.

We are not a creche!

  • If the person attending normally lives an independent life then they are welcome to attend independantly.
  • However if they require care at home, then the carer should attend with the person.
