What is Falmouth Memory Café?
Falmouth Memory Café is a group which offers, in an informal setting help, support and information for people affected by memory problems. When we say ’affected by memory problems', we really mean the person with memory loss, their carers, family and friends, as everyone is ‘affected’.
It operates on a ‘drop-in’ basis and is free. It gives those attending the chance to exchange experiences and information and receive practical information and emotional support and also reduces the isolation often felt by people with dementia, their carers and families. Many people make friendships as a result and are able to support each other outside of the Memory Café setting.
The cafe is run by experienced volunteers with the support of health professionals, on the second and fourth Tuesdays of each month, from 2pm until 4pm at Emmanuel Baptist Church, Western Terrace, Falmouth. Many of the volunteers are former carers and understand the pressures carers face – come along, have a relaxing afternoon knowing you can relax and that your caree (there must be a better word for the person you’re caring for!) is in capable hands, hopefully having fun as well, or, at least joining in…
Advice is available from health professionals and other civic and community agencies who regularly attend the Memory Café from time to time. Falmouth Memory Café also offers activities such as reminiscences, games, singing, discussions and visiting speakers, as well as the chance to just chat informally.
Falmouth Memory Cafés, like all other Memory Cafes throughout the UK, is not a formal care service and there is no formal assessment or referral process and no pre-booking is necessary.
Who is the Falmouth Memory Cafe for?
Falmouth Memory cafe is run by volunteers, and voluntary donations, free to users, helping people with progressive memory loss - based on research that demonstrates that socialising, being part of a community and brain stimulating activities all help maintain the memory
Falmouth Memory Cafe is for people who have received a diagnosis of dementia or are worried about their memory, their carers and other family members.
Anyone with progressive memory loss or memory worries may attend unaccompanied or with family, friends or carers. However, the cafe is not suitable for people with dementia to attend alone if they have specific care needs.
Falmouth Memory Café is not a ‘drop off’ facility for short periods of respite.
Memory cafes are the only facilities available to anyone who have a MiniMental score below 20
