Dementia Support in Howden

Howden Rotary Memory Cafe is a relaxing meeting place for carers and people living with dementia, where they can enjoy the company of others who understand. It’s a place for chat, entertainment, games, activities and refreshments. There is no charge for this service and visitors are warmly welcomed by our team of volunteers.

The cafe is open between 2:30 and 4:30 on the second and fourth Wednesday of each month and is held on the ground floor of Howden Shire Hall,  the entrance being suitable for people with mobility problems. There is a team of volunteers, most of whom have experience of caring for loved ones with dementia.

Carers find it to be a welcoming environment, in which they receive plenty of empathy from others currently or formerly in a similar situation, and guests who are living with dementia are in totally accepting company.

Activities vary from month to month, and new ideas are always welcome. There have been visiting musicians, a seated exercise session, craft making, and singalongs, and there is usually a dementia
friendly quiz to provide further stimulation.
