The Centre hosts a MEMORY CAFE on the 1st and 3rd Fridays in the month from 11 am to 12.00 noon.
Memory Cafe at the Coffee Shop provides a friendly social meeting place for people with all forms of memory problems, their families and friends, to access information in a supportive environment.
Memory Cafe returns on Friday 4th September 2020, from 11 am to 12.00 noon in the meeting room. From October, it will be held from 11 am to 12.30 pm.
This venture has developed well with the service being provided by volunteers who offer support, encouragement, and a listening ear. This has attracted the interest of major research projects, including Lancaster University’s Defying Dementia project, for which they are seeking donations – see http://www.lancaster.ac.uk/giving/mind-body/tackling-alzheimers-and-parkinsons/defying-dementia/
