New weekly cafe for people with symptoms of dementia has launched in West Fife

Published on 13/03/2013

RealLiving Older People’s Service and Alzheimer Scotland have set up a weekly cafe to provide information, advice and support to people who have been diagnosed with dementia and their carers.

The cafe gives those diagnosed with dementia the opportunity to get out of their homes and engage with the local community whilst offering a valuable respite to their carers - who are in most cases a family member.

Those who attend can take part in activities such as reminiscing songs, seated exercises or reciting poetry.

Andrea Sharp, RealLiving Older People Service said:

“The cafe is a great way for people with the symptoms of dementia and their families to come together in a safe and warm environment to learn more about dementia and memory loss as well as finding out what other support they have access to.”

Opening times

The cafe is open every Tuesday, for the next five weeks, from 10.30am until 12.30pm at Valleyfield Community Centre, Chapel Street, High Valleyfield, KY12 8SJ.
