Stourport dementia cafe opens!20 Mar 2017 By Sam Setchell
St Michael's Church in Stourport has started a Dementia Cafe.
Liz Bloomer, Churchwarden at St. Michael and All Angels, writes:
"We held our first Dementia Cafe at St Michaels in Stourport in February where we had a cake to celebrate our first day. 22 visitors arrived and we have now planned activities on the 1st and 3rd Tuesdays of the month!
"There were lots of volunteers to help us and Helen Attree from Alzheimer's UK, provided us with Dementia Friend training.
"We feel that we have learned so much already from the people who visited us and that our personal views and assumptions have been challenged. We have so much more to learn but already we can feel the effect on both our personal lives and the life of the church.
"The Stourport community have, once again, supported us fully and it is lovely to see so many of them volunteering in this."
