The memory café in Bradford on Avon supports people living with memory problems and their carer’s.
This initiative is being run by The Bradford on Avon and Melksham Health Partnership to provide information and social support, and also a place to meet up.
Amanda Brookes, Business Manager at Bradford on Avon Health centre, feels it is important to bring this vital service to the town as the Health Centre currently have over 200 Patients registered with Dementia and there is limited places for Patient’s and their carer’s to go to get help & support within Bradford on Avon. The objective for the café is to be a fun place to come for information and to network with people in a similar position.
Monthly sessions are held on the first Thursday of every month at The Dog and Fox Inn in Ashley Road between 3 – 4.30 pm. The Health Centre who are funding the project and supplying the dementia specialist staff, have said that if the idea proves popular in the town then they will consider holding it more frequently.
