The Memory Wellbeing Cafes provide an opportunity for people with dementia and their carers to come together in a safe and welcoming environment where they can speak with each other, volunteers and professionals for support.
The cafes, which are based in the communities where they are most needed, have worked very well in other areas of the North West. They can help prevent feelings of loneliness and isolation by giving visitors the opportunity to speak to other people in similar situations as themselves.
Each cafe will have professionals from different organisations providing relevant information on a series of topics on a one-to-one or group basis. As well as this, activities, such as singing and dancing, will also be organised.
This session will continue on the second Wednesday of every month.
