DEMENTIA sufferers and their carers in Sidmouth will be boosted when the town's first 'memory café' gets officially up and running next Wednesday, May 26.
The Rotary Clubs of Sidmouth and the Sid Valley have teamed up to provide the new scheme in the hope it can help an estimated 120 people, and countless carers in the
area, whose lives are affected by the condition.
Memory Cafes, aimed at dementia and memory loss sufferers and their carers, aim to offer a relaxing opportunity for people to meet, share experiences and gather
information to help them and their families.
The memory café, which will run from Twyford House from 2.30pm to 4.30pm on the fourth Wednesday of every month, was launched with a free information day celebration on the Queen's birthday, April 21.
For more information contact café co-ordinator Derek Eagles of the Sid Valley Rotary Club on (01395) 579789 between 9am and 5pm. Anyone without transport
can contact the Sidmouth Voluntary Ambulance Service on (01395) 512221.
