What happens at the Memory Café?
One of the most important aspects of the Sid Valley Memory Café is that it provides a chance to have a cup of tea or coffee and biscuits, whilst chatting with friends who are in a similar situation. It is also a chance to connect with your local health care professionals, or from time to time to hear presentations from support associations.
Appropriate activities are available for everyone to engage with, if they wish. You do not have to take part if you do not want to, you can just sit and chat or listen to what is going on around you.
Each week, we offer a wide variety of activities, including:
- Music: We have a regular sing-along and provide a keyboard accompaniment and our own songbook
- Games: Skittles, quoits, indoor bowls, Scrabble and many more to provide mental stimulation
- Readings, recitals, talks, quizzes and reminiscence discussions
In other words, what we offer is anything our visitors to the café would enjoy!
We all like singing
