Arlington Manor Care Home to host a dementia support café

Arlington Manor, our state-of-the-art care home in Girton, Cambridge will host a monthly dementia support café at the home to encourage carers of those living with dementia to get together and support each other.

The drop-in dementia support café will be open the first Thursday of every month at 10:30am and will be hosted by the care home’s Dementia Champion and Customer Relationship Manager, Lisa Vile.

The next dementia support café will commence on Thursday 4th July.

Lisa Vile said: “We have decided to host a dementia support café at our home as currently 850,000 people in the UK are living with dementia. It is important that as a care provider we get the word out there and as a community we become more dementia friendly.

“The café will offer a support network for carers, a place they can come together and share knowledge and life experiences.

“There will also be an opportunity at some sessions to extend your knowledge of dementia further with various guest speakers.”

If you have any questions about dementia or would like to register your interest in attending or becoming a guest speaker please contact Lisa at the home on 01223 81490 or email Lisa.Vile@hallmarkcarehomes.co.uk
