What is a Memory Cafe?
A Memory Cafe is a wonderfully welcoming place for individuals with Alzheimer’s or any type of the dementias or other brain disorders.
Additionally, it is helpful for people with all forms of mild cognitive impairment.
Here’s what to might expect if you visit our Wivey Memory Café.
Three facts worth knowing
1. Wivey Memory Café will be held on a regular basis, once a fortnight, (1stand 3rdThursday). We are located in a place that is easy to access, at the Silver Street. The Centre is a Disabled friendly venue.
2. Tables are laid out ‘café style’ and tea, coffee and biscuits are served (you might be asked to make a donation).
3. Our Memory cafe will run by people (including volunteers) who have experience and can offer you support and encouragement so you should receive a warm welcome. If you want to have a chat or get some help or advice, a support team might be available. (A memory café is not the same as a memory clinic where a formal diagnosis of dementia can be made)
Benefits of going to a memory café
You (and your carer) can both socialise and chat with other like-minded people, and curb feelings of loneliness and isolation.
You can talk about personalissues that you might be worried about, with people who understand.
