Are you caring for someone with Dementia, or do you perhaps have concerns about your own memory? It can be lonely and worrying but you’re not on your own. Many people around you are in the same boat. You don’t have to feel isolated. More people than ever are becoming dementia aware, and most organisations need, and want, to be dementia friendly.
You may have seen posters for Memory Cafes and wondered what they are about. They are a great place for people with dementia and memory problems to socialise in an informal and friendly atmosphere. Memory Cafes are held in Liskeard, Callington, Launceston, Downderry, Looe, and many more places in the South West. Most are held monthly, some are more frequent. Pensilva has its own Memory Cafe. It is a small friendly group who meet once a month for tea and cake and a bit of relaxing fun. We might have some music, a simple game or quiz, and a bit of reminiscing. You can join in if you want to, but nothing is compulsory. We hope you will just relax and not worry about anything for a couple of hours. There is no charge but we do appreciate a donation in the region of £1 each towards expenses.
It might be worth coming along to join us just to see what goes on. You might find it beneficial to yourself, or your partner, or a parent, or friend. You might even enjoy it. Why not give it a try? You’d be most welcome. There’s nothing to lose.
We meet on the fourth Thursday of each month from 2pm – 4pm. We’d love to see you at St John’s Church, next to the Millennium Centre, PL14 5NF.
