Opening during the Pandemic
Beeston Memory Café is back on Thursdays! 🥳
Working within the Government’s Covid Secure guidelines we are meeting on an invitation only basis with a reduced capacity and a slightly different format. It has been wonderful to meet, see old friends again and have some fun.
If you would like to be included in one of these sessions please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org – unfortunately we cannot take ‘walk-ins’ at this time.
CALL FOR TRUSTEES – BEESTON DEMENTIA FRIENDS
USE YOUR TALENTS TO HELP OTHERS
Beeston Dementia Friends was formed in 2014 to support people in the community living with dementia and their carers.
We established Beeston Memory Café in September 2014 in the Middle Street Resource Centre, Beeston. It now meets every Thursday and the weekly sessions are varied.
We are an enthusiastic group of trustees, meet bi-monthly and are currently seeking to appoint new trustees. We welcome, in particular, applicants with a background or expertise in HR, law, IT and web design or health or care sector professionals. Applicants able to offer other skills are also welcome to apply.
If you are interested in finding out more please contact us:
or email: email@example.com
Beeston Memory Café is a safe, friendly venue open to anyone living in the community with dementia and their accompanying carer or supporter.
Café sessions include social activities and a chance to meet and get to know new people. More importantly, it’s somewhere to have fun!
The Café meets every Thursday of the month from 2.00pm to 4.00pm
(see programme for further details)
1st Thursdays are informal with board games, quizzes and more! Three trained therapists are also available for everyone for individual massage and reflexology at no extra charge.
2nd Thursdays have a theme (e.g. Valentines, sport, holidays) with speakers, entertainment, quizzes and singing.
3rd Thursdays include music, singing songs and games, as well as an opportunity for those who support people with dementia to chat to each other.
4th Thursdays focus on music, art and craft activities or exercise led by professionals.
5th Thursdays will have special entertainment, e.g. film show or an outing.
Alongside the Café sessions, we have information on support and resources available to carers. From time to time, this includes visits from professionals working in support and information agencies.
Carers’ resources are available on all Thursdays.
The Memory Café is sponsored by Nottinghamshire County Council and NHS Nottingham West Clinical Commissioning Group in partnership with Broxtowe Borough Council, as part of the Broxtowe Health Partnership.
