Memory Cafe Monmouth and Usk

Here at Home Instead Monmouth, Pontypool & Abergavenny we wanted to give back to our local community, so we have decided to run two monthly memory Cafes! One is based in Usk, and the other is based in Monmouth.

The memory café is a safe and supportive place for you to chat with people in similar situations to you, whether that is someone else with a dementia diagnosis or if you are the carer for a loved one with dementia, it’s nice to know you’re not alone.

We cater to all memory issues, we know that Parkinson’s can contribute to cognitive ability, and we will base the sessions around the ability of the attendees, ensuring all participants are safe.


We have teamed up with a local company called RISE, they specialise in fun, engaging activities that encourage teamwork and moderate movements (based on ability). Rise understand the benefits of keeping physically, mentally, and socially active, and they’re particularly passionate about addressing social isolation.

Seated sports are adapted versions of the games we all know and love! They include football, hockey and rugby these Rise sessions have proved very popular with attendees, who have great fun and always make the effort to come back!

The Monmouth Memory café is 11:00 – 13:00 the first Monday of every month taking place in the Ballroom at the bridges centre, there is free onsite parking & disables access.

The Usk Memory Café is 11:00 – 13:00 are on Monday’s toward the end of the month but the dates to vary, taking place in Usk Centenary Hall, there is free onsite parking.

Both Cafes are completely free! If you would like to come along please let us know by e-mailing Laura: [email protected] or call us on 01873 772772.
