About Our Dementia Cafe

Our Dementia Café is a welcoming, once monthly meeting for anyone who is affected by dementia. 

People living with dementia, their families and friends, healthcare professionals, and people who are interested in supporting a dementia inclusive community, are all welcome to attend.

Each in-person café takes place at Shankill Bowling Club and starts at 10.30am and lasts for about an hour and a half. 

Join us for a cuppa and some chat at the start followed by a speaker who will introduce a different topic each month with time for discussion at the end.  We want to create a welcoming and warm atmosphere in our café and a space where everyone can share experiences and get support and information.
