Home Instead Welwyn and Hatfield held their Dementia Friendly Community Café at their new venue of Digswell Village Hall, Harmer Green Lane earlier this week.
The Café, has been created to embrace everyone in the community, their carer’s, family and friends. The café offers a safe, welcoming atmosphere for those who require stimulation, socialization and for those who may feel lonely and isolated.
The cafés objective is to give like-minded people the chance to socialise, have a cup of tea, and enjoy some stimulating activities, crafts and music together with the support of guest speakers, including Trading Standards, Hertfordshire Fire Service, Hertswise and many more
With an ageing population, cases of dementia are increasing. This means that more and more people in the local area will be affected by the condition at some point in their lives. It is our hope that by educating the local community, we can create superior dementia awareness and through positive social interaction we can drive our mission to create a dementia friendly community.
The Dementia Friendly Community Café will run on Tuesday’s twice a month from 11.00am until 2.00pm.
