Community Events

Memory Cafe’s

In partnership with Southampton’s Admiral Nursing Team, who are nurses for carers of those with dementia, Caraway hosts monthly Memory Cafe’s across Southampton.

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, you will always find  a warm welcome, a smile, a laugh and a cup of tea and cake at all of our cafes!
