Do you suffer from dementia or care for someone from dementia?
Santosh is very excited to be starting a free Dementia Café in association with Bina Sitaram from Shakti.
A Dementia Café is a place where people who are affected by dementia (patients, family, carer’s, friends) can come along to relax and mix with other people who have similar experiences as them in dealing with Dementia. The dementia café has been set up so that people from Asian backgrounds can go somewhere where their cultural needs are understood and also receive advice on how to deal with any culturally related problems stemming from their journey with dementia.
Free refreshments shall be provided as well as some healthy snacks.
The Santosh Dementia Café will provide a safe environment where people are not judged but are supported and understood. Come along to relax and enjoy yourself.
We held our first Santosh Dementia Café’s on Thursday 30th July. Thank you to Kayleigh from Alzheimer’s Society for providing further support to our service user and their family.
The next Dementia Cafe will be held at Santosh on Thursday 27 August at 1.30pm. If you are interested in attending, or for more information, please contact Santosh on 0116 2669577 and ask to speak to Tobias or Krupa’
