We started the Memory Cafe support group in 2015 for family and friends of people living with Dementia. Your loved one living with Dementia can come along to enjoy some social time with our residents, while you share your experiences with others over a cup of coffee/tea and refreshments. The Memory cafe is held once a month and is a free service.
AD-ventures and social events
The excursions for people living with Dementia includes visiting local historic sites, exploring the surrounds and going on outings. Any person in the earlier stages of Dementia is welcome to join us.
To book your place please contact us.
Training and workshops
We provide Dementia specific training and workshops for nurses, home carers & anyone else who is interested to learn about Dementia.
Dementia care consulting
Our Dementia care specialist is here to support you. We assist with choosing the most appropriate care options (for example at home care, assisted living & long-term care) for your unique situation.
We will also advise you about care related challenges and provide counselling when you experience caregiver burnout
