5 July 2022
from 2pm – 3pm
Our Virtual Dementia Café is open to people living with dementia, their families, friends, healthcare professionals and anyone with an interest in dementia.
Each café lasts for about 1 hour and takes place over Zoom. Make sure to have a cuppa and join us for 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. At the moment it is a virtual space where people can share experiences and get support and information.
Topic for July:
This month we are delighted to be joined by Bernie McGowan (Social Prescribing Link Coordinator for the Care of the Older Person’s Services at St James’s Hospital). Bernie will talk about the concept of social prescribing. 50% of referrals Bernie receives to the social prescribing program have a diagnosis of mild cognitive impairment or dementia. Learn more about this program and its benefits.
If you have any topics that you would like covered in future cafes please let us know!
We will be taking a break in August and will be back again in September.
We’ve started a Dementia-Friendly Directory of places to visit which you can access HERE. If you have any further suggestions please let us know!
