Beeston Memory Café is a safe, friendly venue open to anyone living in the community with dementia and those supporting them. The person living with dementia must be accompanied by a supporter.
Cafe sessions include social activities and a chance to meet and get to know new people. More importantly, it’s somewhere to have fun!
