A new dementia café is launching at a Kings Lynn care home offering activities for those living with dementia and support for their caregivers.
Amberley Hall Care Home will be throwing open their doors once a month to anyone touched by dementia including relatives of residents, those living independently and those being cared for at home by loved ones, as well as those supporting them.
The first meeting takes place on Friday, 20th January between 10am and midday. Tea, coffee and freshly-baked cake will be served to everyone attending.
The Alzheimer’s Society will be offering a talk on the condition and how it can affect a person to help caregivers understand more about the journey while the home’s lifestyles team will provide a range of activities including arts and crafts, games and puzzles for those not attending the talk.
Kerri Rasberry, Customer Relationship Manager at Amberley Hall Care Home, said: “Living with dementia can be a lonely experience, not only for the person but also the caregiver. We want to give people the chance to talk to others in a similar position, who understand what they are going through.
“The lifestyles teams will provide activities that help people living with dementia to use the skills they have, give them a sense of purpose and boost self-esteem.”
