Memory Cafe Volunteer

21st May 2021, 12:11pm | By Annie Clayton |

Our volunteers support the facilitator in the smooth running of our monthly cafe for people with dementia and their family carers, at the Grassacres Hall in Westbury.

The memory cafe is a place where our members can find out more about dementia and the help available, meet others in a similar situation and enjoy a pleasant social outing.

Volunteers offer a warm welcome, engaging and supporting members in conversations.  They assist with setting up, preparing/serving refreshments and clearing away at the end of the cafe.   This is a rewarding role as part of a committed team of volunteers with on-going support and training in dementia awareness offered.

If you would like find out more about joining our friendly volunteer team please phone Annie Clayton on 01985 624 005 or visit  https://www.alzheimerswiltshire.org.uk/Pages/Category/volunteer
