Launch of new Memory Café at St Giles Church with Home Instead
Memory Cafés are comfortable and supportive gatherings for people living with dementia and their carers where they can socialise with others in a similar situation. There is a chance to talk, reminisce and enjoy a cup of tea or coffee and a biscuit in a safe, friendly environment. Home Instead provide the highest quality of dementia care for older adults in their own home and have joined with St Giles Church to launch the Memory Café as a free event.
Launching officially on the 11th October with an official opening by the Mayor of Wrexham. Representatives of St Giles Church and Home Instead and with local organisation from around Wrexham will also be in attendance. The Memory Café is at 1-3pm and will run the 2nd and 4th Tuesday of every month. It is free to attend and there will be free tea, coffee, and cakes, support from specialist dementia caregivers, singing, crafts, activities and advice.
Matthew Murray-James of Home Instead, a leading provider of home care, which supports clients in their own homes in Wrexham and Flintshire, said:
“We are very excited about the launch of the Memory Café at St Giles Church. We have developed a strong partnership with the church and are looking forward to welcoming you to the informal sessions where everyone is welcome."
“The café will provide an opportunity for anyone with memory loss or dementia, their carers, friends and family members, and others just looking for company, to come to meet, to reminisce, to share experiences or just get out of the house."
“With good care and support provision, older people can continue to enjoy a high quality of life, and we’re so proud to provide valuable care, companionship and support that enable this to happen. We have a special interest in dementia services and hope this can be the start of our contribution to making Wrexham town dementia friendly."
