Dementia Cafes

We’re very happy to offer two different Dementia Cafes for the community!

Our Making Memories Dementia memory cafe at St Mary’s Community Hub is a great opportunity to meet others on Tuesday afternoons for a friendly chat, a cuppa and some fun activities, along with hearing from guest speakers.

We also run a monthly Happy Memories Dementia Cafe in Darnall, with hot drinks, cakes and activities like we have in Handsworth, but which also offers language support for those who need it. Regular language support is available for Urdu and Somali speakers, but we can help with other languages, too.

To help us to manage numbers at both cafes, we do ask that you register with us before coming along – email or phone: 0114 249 6315 or 07495 548929.

He was animated, engaged and recalling his own history and happy doing it…. The locality of the cafe to his community means he’s been able to rekindle acquaintances with people he knew from his earlier life.
