The Memory Café, sponsored by Home Instead Senior Care, provides a facility where those living with Dementia and their carers, friends and families can meet, talk and join in with activities with other people, as well as an opportunity to speak to support workers, medical practitioners, advisors etc for information and help.
This is a free service.
I think that the Wyvern running a Memory Café is very good. When someone has dementia, you’ve got to remember there’s still a real person there, not just a stereotype of someone looking at the wall with a blanket on their knees. There’s a 360 degree person in there and having Memory Café's and not just storing them away somewhere is a very good thing David Baddiel, comedian & Alzheimer's Society Ambassador
