If anyone is interested in sharing our new dates for the Marjon Memory Café, please find attached a copy of our poster.

The Marjon Memory Café provides an opportunity for people with dementia and other memory disorders and their family and carers to regularly meet up and exchange information and their experiences of living with memory problems. Marjon Memory Café offers a friendly and informal environment where guests can feel safe and enjoy the outing from home.

There are also organised activities that can provide fun and beneficial surroundings for people with dementia. Activities we offer are emphasized on reminiscing, and this can involve discussion around old photos, familiar items from the past, music and films. Other activities can also include games and art & craft sessions.

We serve light refreshments for a small donation as the café is run by student volunteers. If you would like to know more about the café please email Faye, whether it's regarding bringing a relative along or giving your time to become one of our volunteers.

Many thanks
