Don’t Forget Me Community Café in care homes across Hadleigh
Once a month, Waterfield House care home will come together with other care homes in the Hadleigh community, care providers, and groups, to host a large-scale dementia café.
The first session will take place on the 28th of June, where attendees will focus on all things gardening.
With new themes each month, the community of Hadleigh and residents from across different care homes and care home groups, can expect to participate in a gardening club, flower arranging, games, and appearances from guest speakers from the industry.
The wide scale dementia café was formed as a community support network for carers and family members who support those living with dementia at home. The café will offer an opportunity for the attendees to interact with others living with dementia and provide a safe space to talk through difficult experiences, personally or professionally.
There are 6 care homes involved in the project, including Runwood Homes’ very own, Waterfield House.
Dementia cafés are a supportive space to discuss dementia; the community will also receive professional advice from dementia specialists or listen to stories from other people with shared experiences.
Lindsey Fletcher, Customer Relationship Manager at Waterfield House care home, said: “It’s a fantastic idea, bringing the community together after a couple of difficult years, not being able to socialise and feeling alone. Hopefully, these sessions will provide a safe, social environment and bring us together as a supportive networking group.”
