Dementia Cafe

This is held on the last Friday in every month and is run by Dementia Friends from the ShipShape Heath and Wellbeing Centre.

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.
