Virtual Memory Lane Cafe

Our Memory Lane café is now a virtual meeting

We understand how important social interaction is, especially for older people. We have run a monthly memory Lane Café for clients and CAREGivers for several years and they have been loved by those attending. However due to lockdown and clients having to self-isolate we have had to re think the format.

We decided, some weeks ago, to move to virtual, weekly meetings using ZOOM. Maureen, our Community Relationship Manager has become our ZOOM champion who helps everyone accessing the site. We have a ZOOM information sheet and along with this and support from Maureen our CAREGivers have helped our clients login to these weekly meetings.

The format of our meetings remains the same as before, we try and encourage conversations around a topic, we have a quiz and we always end with a sing-a long led by one of our CAREGivers, Kevin, on his guitar. Our clients love these sessions. A big thank you to Maureen and Kevin for arranging them.
