Our memory café has been closed since the start of the lockdown in March. In the mean time we have been seeking ways to keep contact with our members. We are aware that most of our members and some of our volunteers come within the most vulnerable groups. We plan to open just as soon as government and NHS advice allows to do so, provided the places we meet are available.
We still have plans for activities and outings we had to postpone.
We also have the funds set aside for them.
Looking forward to seeing everyone once we can!!!
A brief introduction
The Launceston Memory Café, the first in Cornwall, was opened in October 2007 and set up to provide a regular amenity for people who experience memory problems. Equally important, it offers opportunities for carers to meet other carers who may be sharing similar circumstances.
The café is run on a very friendly and informal basis by trained and experienced volunteers. There is a very warm welcome for visitors, with a choice of refreshments and a couple of hours to relax in a supportive environment and enjoy a regular break from the otherwise everyday routine.
Where do we meet?
Launceston Methodist Church
Every other Saturday
2pm until 4pm
A warm welcome awaits
Trips down memory lane are often triggered by some of the optional activities during the afternoon which can include music, books, puzzles and just general reminiscing through conversation about things from the past. Seasonal activities can include trips out for cream teas, barbecues and visits to places of interest as well as celebrating Christmas and our anniversary with parties
