A new dementia café is launching at Amberley Hall Care Home in Kings Lynn, offering activities for those living with dementia and support for their caregivers.
The home will be throwing open its doors once a month to anyone touched by dementia whether they themselves are living with dementia or they are caring for someone with the condition.
Relatives of our residents are also invited.
The first meeting takes place on Friday, 20th January between 10am and midday. Tea, coffee and freshly-baked cake will be served to everyone attending.
The Alzheimer’s Society will be offering a talk on the condition and how it can affect a person to help caregivers understand more about the journey while the home’s lifestyles team will provide a range of activities including arts and crafts, games and puzzles for those not attending the talk.
Kerri Rasberry, Customer Relationship Manager at Amberley Hall Care Home, said: “Living with dementia can be a lonely experience, not only for the person but also the caregiver. We want to give people the chance to talk to others in a similar position, who understand what they are going through.
“The lifestyles teams will provide activities that help people living with dementia to use the skills they have, give them a sense of purpose and boost self-esteem.”
The Amberley Hall Dementia Café will continue to be held on the third Friday of each month with the next session taking place Friday, 17th February.
There is no need to book, just drop in and meet the team.
