Memory Lane Café

 

Calderdale runs four dementia-friendly cafes every month (in Sowerby Bridge on 2nd & 4th Saturday and in Halifax on 1st & 3rd Wednesday).

 

As a dementia-friendly space we welcome people affected in any way by dementia, other forms of memory loss and social isolation. Our cafes offer a friendly welcome, good company (and cakes), information and a  wide range of activities for visitors. We provide various games ranging from a table quiz and jigsaws to boules and table tennis. Often we have entertainment (such as singers to join in with) and we are always keen to help visitors celebrate events (such as birthdays).

 

Outside cafe hours, we organise group trips to concerts and places of interest. As part of our service we have a library of information about relevant services and we regularly invite professional services to come to the cafes to provide information and support to our members.
