There are dementia cafes across Aberdeenshire. The cafes provide an informal meeting place in a community setting for people with dementia and their families to get together and develop friendships in a friendly and supportive environment. It is important that the sense of social isolation felt by many people with dementia and their carers as their condition progresses is reduced.
The cafes are suitable for people who are able to attend on their own safely or who can bring their own support with them.
There will be on occasion informative talks, singing sessions, IT support and outings organised.
You can join in at any time. Coffees, teas, cakes available purchased at cost from venues.
