Monkscroft Care Centre in Cheltenham hosted their first memory café this week and will be running their memory café on the first Wednesday of every month.

The memory café welcomed members of the local community, volunteers and people from local organisations. There was plenty of information and leaflets available, along with the support of our Head of Dementia Care.

It was a great opportunity for the local community to get together and be able to speak to other local people in the same situation whilst having a cup of tea and a slice of cake.

A board was set up with what people would like from the next memory café, so this will continue to evolve and grow.

The next memory café at Monkscroft Care Centre is Wednesday 6th March 2-4pm, the event is free, informal and everyone is welcome.
