Home Instead Wimbledon & Kingston proudly lauched our fourth Memory Cafe this month - called The Queensmere Memory cafe.

The Cafe it hosted by The Wimbledon Synagogue on Queensmere Road, off Parkside in Wimbledon Village.

Home Instead were approached by a very active and thriving Jewish community, who wanted to open their doors to the local community and welcome anyone from any walk of life, to join the memory cafe on the 2nd Monday of each month at 2.30-4.30pm.

So on Monday, we were made to feel very welcome, with delicious cakes and copious cups of tea, a welcome from resident Wimbledon Actress, Thelma Ruby, who at the age of 90 is returning to the stage with her one women show in July. Thelma praised such a fantastic project and wished us luck.

Dementia lead at Home Instead, Lynn James, has already got a packed diary of events for this exciting new venture, with a visit from the Royal Academy, In Mind Arts educator in April and many more interesting topics and activities throughout the year.

For any one interested in coming along, please call Lynn on 020 8942 4137.
