Dementia Cafés provide a safe, comfortable and supportive environment for people with dementia and their carers to socialise.

As well offering a range of fun and engaging activities, Dementia Cafés give both carers and people with dementia a chance to get information and advice.

How does this role make a difference?

The Support Services volunteer role is essential to support staff and to engage with people with dementia during activities. In this role you will ensure that group participants feel comfortable and are able to participate.

 What will I be doing?

  • Talking and listening to people with dementia and their carers in a sensitive and supportive way.
  • Providing basic information, including fact sheets and similar Society materials.
  • Preparing and distributing refreshments.
  • Developing an understanding of Alzheimer’s Society activities, and other local services, so that questions/enquiries can been handled well.

The cafe will run on the second Thursday of every month at Kinver Community Fire Station.
