Dementia Café  8th Anniversary June 2012
 
June 28th marked the 8th Birthday of The Dementia Café.  From its first meeting in 2004 with a small number of people attending the café has grown 
to its current regular 100 plus attendance. Meeting on the last Friday of the month, the café provides a relaxed meeting place for people who have 
dementia and their carers and families, to come together with staff working in dementia services in Sheffield. The friendly café atmosphere allows people to meet and talk with others in a similar situation, find information about services in the city and be 
put in touch with people who can give advice and support.

The United Reformed Church has undoubtedly contributed to the café’s success with its attractive facilities and central location that allows people to 
combine a regular town centre trip with a visit to the café.Refreshments cakes and biscuits are standard fare at the Friday morning café but this June
 we marked the occasion with a party, which was enjoyed by all.
 
The Café is a partnership initiative between The Alzheimer’s Society, Sheffield Care Trust and Sheffield City Council.
If you wish to know more about the café or the work of the Alzheimer’s Society please ring the Sheffield office on 0114 2768 414.
