A care home in Woking is launching a new monthly support group designed to help local people caring for an older loved one.
On Wednesday 30th January from 2pm-5pm, the community is invited to come along to Kingsleigh care home, off Kingfield Road, for the launch of its monthly dementia café.
The relaxed, informal café will provide an opportunity for carers, families, and people living with dementia to drop into the home for a break, a chat and to meet others in a similar situation to them.
The café will run from 2pm-5pm on the last Wednesday of every month with no charge, and no need to book.
Kelly Kelleher, home manager at Kingsleigh, said: “At Kingsleigh, we strive to create a sense of belonging within the home and provide a positive impact on the local community by building support systems for our neighbours. We aim to create a cheerful environment at the café where everyone will feel comfortable to share their personal stories.
“We’re thrilled to invite the local community to our regular dementia café sessions. We believe that no carer should feel that they are alone, so we’re looking forward to welcoming some new faces for a chat over a cup of tea and slice of cake.”
Kingsleigh care home has been designed to provide residential and specialist dementia care, as well as respite, and sensitive end of life care.
