A brief introduction
Since we began in 2006, our aim has been to provide local based support for those who are either living with a dementia or who are their carers, friends or family.
At our sessions, we give people the opportunity to meet others who are in a similar situation, in a relaxed and social atmosphere – carers can access information, share concerns and experiences, while a range of stimulating activities is provided for their loved ones.
We are a Charitable Incorporated Organisation, and affiliated to the Tavistock Dementia Alliance, and Devon Memory Café Consortium, with whom we hold the Quality Assurance Mark.
We were proud to have been shortlisted in the Clothworker's Company awards for Good Governance 2020; there were a large number of applications and sadly we did not win our category, but are very pleased to receive this certificate
Responding to the public’s rapidly growing need for health information on Coronavirus you can now view a “How to try to avoid getting the Coronavirus” video along with some other supporting videos.
Where do we meet?
We meet on the 2nd and 4th
Saturdays of each month
The Anchorage Centre
From 2:00 p.m. to 4:00 p.m.
New members are greeted by one of our team of enthusiastic volunteers, who ensure that they are introduced to others and helped to settle in and feel at ease.
Everyone wears name badges which help with recognition and conversation.
We do make a small charge of £2.50 per person at each visit, in order to cover refreshments.
