The ‘sing a long’ activity held in January went extremely well. Everyone enjoyed the music which brought back memories of the past. Thanks to Theresa for coming along and facilitating the activity.
The March meeting is on Thursday 10th when Sarah Jane will be running an art and craft activity.
The Memory café provides access to support services to people who have dementia, memory loss and their carers. It is also a good place to socialise and meet others with similar problems and get advice about coping with memory loss. People who attend the cafe are from all walks of life and of varying ages. Some people may have had a recent diagnosis of dementia whilst others may be worried about their memory and want advice. People who attend find that they continue to come along and value the cafe for its welcoming, informal and relaxed atmosphere. The Cafe offers a listening ear and a couple of hours break from the regular days routines.
The Memory Café is held at the Methodist Church meeting room from 10.30am till 12.30pm on the second Thursday of each month. If you need any further information about the Memory Café and the services we offer then please get in touch with Pauline on 01805 625969.
