The benefits of coming together for individuals with dementia and their family carers are many. In the togetherness of the Memory Cafe, we can overcome social isolation that so often accompanies dementia. These communal gatherings are also a safe space and stimulating both for cognitive and emotional wellbeing. For carers, these groups can bring a little respite and support, offering a space to share experiences, and connect with others on similar journeys. Together, the Memory Cafe can be a space where stories are shared, smiles seen and an atmosphere of understanding and solidarity.

We warmly invite you and your loved ones to join our Memory Cafe in partnership with Wentworth Woodhouse.
