Story

Thanks for visiting our page! We are a group of training Police Officers which alongside our studies will be raising money for The Memory Café in a variety of ways, so watch this space to see what we get up to.

A Memory Café provides a place where any member of the public, who feels that they, or a person they know, may have memory problems, can drop in without an appointment, and talk to an experienced volunteer or if necessary a professional. Memory Cafés are distinct from Memory Clinics which are formal assessment and diagnostic services for dementia run by the NHS.

People with memory problems or dementia and their carers have the opportunity to meet regularly with other people in similar circumstances and to take part in stimulating activities, such as Arts & Craft, Quiz, Painting, Singing, Games, Puzzles and Gardening etc. Information is available, as well as practical tips about coping with dementia and memory problems. They also provide an outreach programme at all four of their cafés.

Many people make friendships as a result and are able to support each other outside the Memory Café setting. This informal setting provides emotional support and also reduces the isolation often felt by people with dementia, their carers and families.

Anything you can give to keep this fantastic charity going will be greatly appreciated by the team, the staff and all members of the Memory Café.
