Seaton & District Memory Cafe

"Providing a friendly meeting place for people with memory problems, their families and friends"

Who We Help, Why We Help & the Difference It Makes

The Memory café is for:

  • Anyone who is experiencing memory problems or who has been newly diagnosed with dementia
  • Their relatives/friends who support them.

Research has shown that space to talk and share helps carers understand what is happening, as well as support the person who experiencing memory challenges. The Memory Café aims to provide this safe, social space for people in this situation.

A Safe Social Space

The social side is probably the most important aspect of the café. Its provides a chance to have a cuppa and cake, chat with friends and share what is going on for you, and share with others in similar situation.

It’s also a chance to connect with some of your local health care professionals, some of whom you may already know and others you can get to know. On some occasions, one of our professional health care team may give a talk or others advice on a particular aspect of memory loss.

Appropriate activities will be available for everyone to engage with, if they want to. You do not have to take part if you do not wish to.

You can sit and chat or just listen to what’s going on around you.
