Memory Wellbeing Cafes

Our Memory Wellbeing Cafes and Carers Support group are free, social meeting places for people living with dementia, their carers, family and friends.

Memory Wellbeing Cafes give people affected by dementia an opportunity to get together to share experiences, learn from each other and enjoy a social activities. They are also a great place to get information and find out what other help and support is available to anyone affected by dementia.

You can have as little or as much involvement in the cafe as you like, and we are always looking for suggestions for future cafe guest speakers and activities.

The term 'dementia' describes a set of symptoms which include loss of memory, mood changes, and problems with communication and reasoning. These symptoms occur when the brain is damaged by certain diseases, including Alzheimer's disease and damage caused by a series of small strokes. Dementia is progressive, which means the symptoms will gradually get worse. How fast dementia progresses will depend on the individual person and what type of dementia they have. Each person is unique and will experience dementia in their own way. It is often the case that the person's family and friends are more concerned about the symptoms than the person may be themselves.
A term used for elderly people.
