On Thursday 11th May, Sunrise Senior Living of Mobberley will be hosting a regular Memory Café, in conjunction with the Alzheimer’s Society
The Sunrise community is offering this free drop-in service, which will take place on the second Thursday of every month, from 10 am – 12 pm. The Café is open to all who may have concerns about their memory or the memory of a loved one or friend.
A relaxed combination of activities and memory focused group gatherings will be planned, but the community will also be liaising with attendees to find out what they would like to get out of the meetings.
Some sessions will have a guest speaker from the local area – ranging from dementia and nutritional experts to paramedics and GPs, that can offer advice and answer any questions.
In the past, the Alzheimer’s Society led the Memory Cafes but recently lost their venue. Sunrise of Mobberley stepped in and offered to host these
sessions to take place, and complimentary refreshments will be provided throughout.
At all the monthly meetings, Sunrise of Mobberley’s head of dementia care will be on hand, along with a representative from the Alzheimer’s Society
Speaking about the launch, Lisa Burrows, General Manager at Sunrise of Mobberley, said:
“The Sunrise of Mobberley Team is passionate about the work that they do for people who live with Alzheimer’s and dementia, and we are thrilled to be able to reach out to the local area in this way.
“The on-going Memory Café will provide an opportunity for participants and their carers to meet regularly with other people who might be living with memory loss.
“The service presents a chance to exchange experiences and to give and receive emotional support, in a relaxed environment.
“The Café is completely free and open to all - do come and pay us a visit for fun, engaging and entertaining sessions. Plus, it is a great way to meet new people.”
