Dementia Stars


Dementia Specialist Day Centre/Dementia Cafe Opened in Acton, Sudbury
Open Currently on Fridays 10am – 3:30pm.


£50 per person – Family member is free of charge


The format is much the same as with the regular day centre. The main difference is that our Dementia Specialist being on site to provide information for family carers.


The specialist has a background in the DIST team, Cambridge, and comes with a wealth of experience in dealing with Crisis or emergency situations along with training others in various aspects of Dementia.


Our new initiative at Dementia Stars is well placed to support the family in that the family can discuss any problems or issues with our Dementia Specialist. When dealing with a family member who has dementia, often we find that people don’t have enough resources available or training on how to handle situations. We can arrange for training to be given on how to handle problems they face throughout their lives with a loved one suffering with Dementia.


If a family member wishes to see this as another daycentre day, then they are not obliged to stay.

We are offering the support from the Dementia Specialist as an additional form of support to the community.
