A support service in Keyworth for people with dementia and their carers. Called Rosemary's Cafe after the beautiful herb associated with memory, it will meet once a month at the Parochial Hall on the corner of Elm Avenue and Selby Lane, on the morning of each second Tuesday, with effect from on Tuesday, 8th September 2015 from 10.30am to 12 noon.
This will take the same form as memory cafes which already thrive across Nottinghamshire. It is a place where people with dementia and their carers can be sure of a warm welcome without any stigma. Refreshments will be served for a small charge, and we will have visiting speakers on topics relevant to living well with dementia, and enjoyable activities.
The project is organised by Diana Jones and Hilary Wellington. Diana is well known in Keyworth and has a very warm and caring personality. She is a Dementia Friend, committed to helping to make communities better places for people with dementia and their carers. Hilary has over 30 years' experience of supporting people with dementia and their carers. She is a Dementia Champion. and is a member of Dementia Care Matters and of the National Association of Activity Providers.
