Memory Cafe Volunteer

21st May 2021, 11:50am | 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 with others in a similar situation and enjoy a pleasant social outing.

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

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