Dementia Cafe

The Dementia Café launched on 21 May 2018 and is staffed by volunteers and members of the CVSU team. It offers a warm, inclusive and supportive environment for local people living with dementia

People living with dementia are invited to come along with their partner, carer or family member and talk/be together over a drink and snack.    We talk about anything relating to life with dementia, as well as other matters that may help with daily living, such as gardening tips, fire safety in the home, and first aid.  

We have visiting professionals who can answer dementia-related questions, and help people navigate their way through a number of issues.  For the future, we plan to offer dementia friendly outings, such as cinema, music/theatre or other ideas café goers may have.

The Dementia Café runs on Mondays, from 10.30 a.m. to 12.00 p.m., at the Rowena Davey Centre, Chequers Lane, Dunmow.  CM6 1EQ.
