Community Events

Memory Cafe’s

In partnership with the Admiral nurses, who are nurses for carers of those with dementia, Caraway hosts monthly Memory Cafe’s in 4 areas of the city.

The Memory Café is a way to meet with and chat to other carers.  A place to have some light hearted chat about other topics such as memories of holidays, laughter, music, or pets. The afternoons provides a relaxed space where people with dementia and their carers can come for an enjoyable outing, knowing that it is a friendly and understanding environment.

Just drop in when you can come, it is a friendly group.
