A cafe providing support to people experiencing memory issues is now offering new sessions for more flexibility.

Seachange Memory Cafe, in Budleigh Salterton, now offers new half-day sessions.

The Cafe, designed for those experiencing memory issues, operates Tuesdays and Wednesdays from 10.30am - 3.30pm at £35 per session, inclusive of a two-course lunch and refreshments.

They also provide staff-facilitated activities designed to keep minds active and promote social interaction,

Participants can connect with like-minded people, who are on a similar journey, building meaningful friendships and offering each other support.

The guiding principle is to create a supportive, inclusive, and engaging environment for individuals struggling with memory loss.

For carers, Seachange Memory Cafe offers a valuable opportunity for respite.

While loved ones enjoy a fun-filled, enriching day, carers can take a well-deserved breather.

Led by Jo Keeler and a group of passionate volunteers, it caters to the unique needs of participants with memory loss.

With a clear understanding of these requirements, they strive to provide an atmosphere brimming with compassion and laughter.

This comes as a music group at Seachange, which encourages people with dementia to sing, has been awarded £6,000 over three years.
