A place for Services veterans to share memories
A NEW cafe for sufferers of dementia – particularly those who have served their country in the Armed Forces – has launched in the city.
The Memory Cafe for people living with dementia has opened at the Crownhill family centre in Crownhill Fort Road and will be available every other Tuesday.
The Alzheimer's Society, working with the Plymouth Drake Foundation, launched the new group in order to meet the growing need in the Plymouth area for support groups for people with a dementia diagnosis.
Due to the strong military presence in Plymouth, the society felt there was a need to provide a specific service where veterans could share military experiences. In addition, dementia support will be made available for ex-service men and women living with the condition.

The Memory Cafe will serve a number of purposes including reducing social isolation by providing a regular meeting place for people living with dementia and their carers and provide a place where support and information about dementia can be shared.
A society spokesman said the cafe will also help those suffering dementia improve their mood and leave them feeling good about themselves.
