The Retreat Memory Cafe hopes to provide a warm and welcoming environment for anyone who is living with dementia and their supporter/carer/friends to attend. It aims to have a variety of stimulating activities for both the person living with dementia and their carer to take part in together. The service provides invited speakers, an information stand on dementia related topics and also general activities. A memory cafe is a great place to meet others who understand the same situation, a place where a person can relax and get peer to peer support. The cafe is organised by Southern Brooks Community Partnerships and staffed by dementia friendly volunteers whose aim is to ensure clients are welcomed, have someone to speak with, to pamper both the person with dementia and their carers for the time they are at the cafe. All activities are free including the refreshments which includes home made cakes, tea or coffee and various activities.
Please contact the service provider for details of any costs.
