The Patient Participation Group (PPG) of the Bidford Surgery in conjunction with the Practice Partners is pleased to announce the launch of the new Bidford Dementia Café on Monday 18th January 2016 at 10.30 am to be held at Westholme Court, Westholme Road, Bidford on Avon.

The aim of the Café is to provide a safe and homely environment to help and support people with memory problems / dementia and their families, carers, and volunteers to enjoy a relaxing and enjoyable morning by socialising and participating in activities and sharing experiences with each other.

It will be run by volunteers on a weekly basis every Monday (except Bank Holidays) between 10.30 am and 12.30 pm on a “drop in” basis.  The Café will be free of charge and refreshments will be available.  It will be open to residents in Bidford and the surrounding areas.

There will be a programme of activities which will include socialising with various games, musical and photographic memories, entertainment, presentations and various forms of exercise.  In addition carers will have the opportunity to meet each other in order to get the much needed support they need.  There will also be regular monthly group meetings for the carers including specialised talks from professionals.

For further information about the Bidford Dementia Café or to offer your services as a volunteer please use the information below.  If there is no reply on the phone please leave a message and you will be contacted.
