Home Instead Basingstoke proudly launched their memory cafes in Tadley on 15th April 2016. Like the opening of the Overton and Old Basing memory cafes, the opening in Tadley was also kindly supported by the Mayor of Basingstoke and Deane, Anne Court and her husband Richard.
Home Instead’s memory cafes are free and open to all members of the local community. We serve refreshments, and offer companionship and reminiscence opportunities for those with memory loss or dementia, plus support and information for their carers.
We decided to open our memory cafes in response to the need for local opportunities for seniors with memory loss, or anyone simply feeling isolated, to meet others in a supportive and understanding environment. The memory cafes also provide opportunities for carers to get together, meet each other, exchange ideas and provide mutual support.
The Tadley memory cafes will be held in the Methodist Church Hall, main road, Tadley, on the third Friday of each month, from 2pm to 3.30pm. Please feel free to drop in, say hello, and have a cup of tea and some biscuits.
