Support and understanding on hand at Dementia Friends first Coffee Morning
July 2, 2019
Cramlington’s aim to become a dementia friendly town takes a step forward this week as the first Dementia Friends monthly coffee morning is being held on Thursday.
During Dementia Action Week the Cramlington dementia working group and Manor Walks joined forces and created a Thought Wall. Having reviewed all of the comments received on the day the group came up with the idea of a meeting place for carers, support workers, dementia friends and people with the condition.
The event will take place on the first Thursday of every month at Nando’s Cramlington and is a great opportunity to meet new people, discuss new ideas to support the town in becoming dementia friendly as well as a place to go to get support and advice on living with Dementia.
Dementia Friends will be on hand to give information and help suggest other available support services – these things can make a huge difference when you or someone you know has dementia and the coffee morning aims to provide a safe and supportive place for you to:
- Discuss your own dementia diagnosis, or someone else’s, and think about what it means for the future.
- Speak to Dementia Friends and discuss how to help make Cramlington a dementia friendly town.
- Meet and learn from other people in similar situations.
- Keep active, make new friends and feel more confident.
The event will be held in Nando’s Cramlington from 10am-12pm on the first Thursday of the month and everyone is welcome.
