Pop-up Memory Cafe comes to Crosby

CROSBY will welcome a pop up ‘Memory Cafe' to offer locals the chance to find out more about Alzheimer’s Society services.

It will provide opportunities for residents to meet specialist staff and find out more about local services in the area.

Memory Cafes provide people with dementia and carers a platform to talk openly about living with the illness within a relaxed and informal environment.

The event will be held at Crossroads Cafe, on Liverpool Road, on Wednesday, July 29 between 10am – 12 midday.

It is billed as an ideal opportunity for anyone to meet Alzheimer’s Society staff and find out more about local services and find out more information about dementia.

It’s a free service with free parking and refreshments. There is no need to book and anyone looking to attend can just turn up on the day.

Alzheimer’s Society’s Memory Cafes can really help improve people’s quality of life. If you have dementia or care for someone who does, you don’t have to manage on your own, our cafes give you the opportunity to socialise with others experiencing similar issues. They’re also a great source of information, vital support and guidance which can help people to live well with the condition.
