North Walsham Dementia Support Group was formed in 2015 after AGE UK Norfolk had worked with local businesses to help make the town dementia friendly.
We are a local group responding to local needs of people who are living with dementia and their carers. We run the Café in partnership with the Salvation Army.
We consult regularly with those who use our services and help them and their carers to access any help and support needed and signpost and refer onto relevant agencies.
About the Cameo (Dementia) Café
The group is a planned, structured group based around an activity (activities) The activities may cover gentle exercise, music, quizzes and any other activity that encourages participation and include opportunities for people to talk to each other and have fun in a safe and welcoming environment. We endeavour to offer a facilitated carers session in a separate room.
The group is for people with dementia and their carer (or family member) or for those who have problems with their memory. If a person is living with dementia is able to come on their own (and requires no personal care or the requirement of a secured environment) they can also attend, as can a carer who is now living on their own.
If there is someone who is worried about a family member or close friend; or has any questions about dementia they might like to attend and obtain information and/or signposting to a service which could help them.
If it is felt that the service we offer is no longer suitable or cannot meet your needs safely, we will talk to you about this and help support you to access a more suitable service.
