The end of July saw the first Memory Café open its doors in Flackwell Heath, Buckinghamshire, hosted by MacIntyre The Cherries . Filled with fun, laughter and budding friendship, it was an opportunity for people to share their ideas for future cafés.
Reflecting on the Memory Café opening, Caroline Bradley, The Cherries’ Frontline Manager said:
“Setting up the Memory Café was something we wanted to do in 2020, but we were stopped in our tracks due to the Coronavirus Pandemic. The reason behind setting up the Café was to bring people together - those who have dementia, those caring for people with dementia and simply to raise awareness about dementia. We wanted to create a warm, friendly and welcoming environment for people to come along, socialise and support one another.”
