The Dementia Café will commence on Tuesday 28th May from 10.00am to 12 Noon. Could we ask you to promote the service to your friends and family and to anyone you think would benefit from this service.
In support of the work of the Café - the Kittiwake Trust in Gateshead have offered the loan of books about ’Old Newcastle’ and our volunteers are invited to go along to the Trust on Wednesday 15th June. If you would like to be included please meet at the Mercy Hub at 10.30am. For further details about all aspects of the provision please contact Joe Kirwin.
As part of Dementia Action Week the Mercy Hub will also be inviting everyone to come and take part in a Dementia Friends Information session on Friday 23rd May from 11am till 12noon. The session is appropriate to people of all ages who wish to learn a little bit more about what it's like to live with the condition. Hopefully this will help them to feel more assured about putting that understanding into action and discovering the small ways in which you can help in everyday life.
