SEATON: Memory cafe set for Seaton

Tuesday, 24 June 2014


A memory cafe will open in Seaton for people with dementia and their carers and families. The Seaton branch of Devon Senior Voice has been able to start Seaton Memory Cafe following a £500 grant from Devon County Council and match funding from an anonymous donor in memory of her mother. Memory cafes aim to offer a relaxing opportunity for people to meet, share experiences and gather information to help them and their families; a variety of activities are on offer throughout the afternoon. A dementia nurse specialist will also be present for people to talk to in confidence, who will signpost them to further help where necessary. The cafe is supported and welcomed by the community, with people offering to help in many ways, from making cakes to volunteering on the day. Cafe chairman Yvonne Addington: “We are so pleased that Seaton Memory Cafe will be there to help people. “Dementia can affect people in many ways and the effects on family and friends can be far-reaching. If we can just make a little difference on a regular basis, we will have succeeded.” Seaton Memory Café will be formally opened between 2pm and 3pm on Monday, June 30th at Small Hall, Seaton Methodist Church, Scalwell Lane. Its first official day will be Monday, July 7th, and on the first Monday of each month from then on. For more information, contact Yvonne on 07827 813776 or email yvonne.add@sky.com
