Joanna Smith and Yvonne Taylor from Alzheimer's Society, are running the new cafe.

A dementia café opened for the first time in Grantham today (Tuesday).

The café was launched at Apple Trees care home by the Alzheimer’s Society. It will open on the third Tuesday of every month from 10am to noon, available to the 2,000 people in South Kesteven living with the condition.

Phil Measures, Alzheimer’s Society’s peer support group manager in Lincolnshire, said: “Dementia is a huge challenge facing Lincolnshire but we believe that this dementia café in Grantham, and other groups we are launching across the county, will make a real difference locally and will help people to live well with the condition.

“The group will be run by Alzheimer’s Society staff and volunteers and will provide an opportunity for people to socialise and get much needed face-to-face support.”

The café is free to attend for people with dementia and their carers.

For more information, or if you are interested in volunteering with the new group, call 01522 692681.
