The Living Well Cafés provide a welcoming, safe and supportive place for people living with dementia and/or memory problems and their caregivers. The cafés are open to anyone, and you are welcome to come on your own or with a caregiver.
At the cafés we offer information and signposting to organisations which may be able to provide a service, information or help in other practical ways. Each week we have a range of optional activities such as reminiscing, puzzles, aqua painting, Boccia, and we usually have a sing-along to finish. We sometimes have entertainment or an organisation giving a presentation to provide helpful information. Every week we have a ‘fly cup’ with a ‘fine piece’!
There is no set charge for the cafés but donations are welcome to cover the costs of the refreshments and entertainment.
We currently have four cafés across the city:
- Newhills Church and Oldmachar Church run on alternate Tuesdays
- Ferryhill Church and High Church Hilton run on alternate Thursdays
All cafés run from 1 pm to 3 pm and a warm welcome awaits.
