Caring for someone with dementia can be a lonely, isolating existence. For some carers, taking even an hour away from the person they care for can feel too long.  

Our Dementia Cafe’s allow carers and those with dementia to get out of the house and spend time with others. Those with dementia enjoy reminiscence activities whilst the carer, often for the first time in years, is able to take time for themselves, knowing their partner is enjoying themselves and is well looked after.

We have had carers attend being certain that they won’t be able to attend the whole activity without checking on their loved one, only to find that when reaching the end of the session they have no idea where the time had gone.

Each week we hear amazing stories from carers about how the cafe is helping them to make friends and feel more in control of their situation as well as providing valuable activities for the people they care for.

In order provide 150 places at a Dementia Café we need £5,000 to fund the activities, staffing, volunteers and room rental. But the laughter and friendship that the carers and those with dementia gain is worth so much more. By voting for our project you will support these amazing carers and their loved ones with dementia.
