Just to tell you about a monthly memory café we are piloting.
A Memory Cafe is a social gathering where people with memory loss and their family or friends can come together in a friendly and supportive environment.
We will meet on the third Saturday of the month in the Gilbert Centre, Mallow. Each month we will have a focus – music, gardening, yoga or trips local places of interest. The focus for this Saturday is the 1916 Rising.
Weekends appear to be a difficult time for people as most services are Mon-Fri so we are trying this initiative to see if it is helpful.
Details can be found on the poster or on our website www.crystalproject.ie. Please spread the word and if you fancy joining us to help out, you’d be most welcome.
Why not come along and make new friends over a cup of tea and a scone!
All the best
