Join us for tea, cake, singalongs and a friendly chat at our monthly Dementia Café.
Our Dementia Café is a comfortable, social gathering that allows people experiencing memory loss and a loved one or a carer to connect, socialise, and build new support networks. The Café is free to attend (you do not need a ticket for the Historic Dockyard) and all are welcome.
We’ll provide tea, coffee, cold drinks and cake and our friendly staff will lead groups singing sessions as well as the opportunity to learn more and handle objects from our collections. On occasions we’ll also have guest speakers talk about stories connected to the Historic Dockyard.
Where? In the Mess Deck restaurant.
When? 1pm to 3pm on the second Monday of every month. See a list of this year’s dates below.
Who? Anyone who is experiencing memory loss and a loved one or a carer.
