A new dementia friendly café will be opening in a Welwyn Hatfield village.

Home Instead Senior Care, Welwyn and Hatfield, is running a Dementia Friendly Community Café at Digswell Village Hall in Harmer Green Lane.

The café will run twice monthly on a Tuesday from 11am to 2pm with the first session taking place on Tuesday, September 18.

Activities include arts and crafts, quizzes, games, music/entertainment, guest speakers and professionals but most of all social engagement for those who may feel lonely or vulnerable.

Families, friends and carers are welcome.

A spokesman for Home Instead Senior Care said: “This is a community event open to all.

“It is for anyone with or without a dementia related condition, for those who yearn interaction with others and for those who need advice and support.

“It is a place to have a chat over a cuppa.”

The café is being run by DBS certified and fully trained staff and volunteers.

Refreshments will be available at affordable prices.

There is no charge for entry, although donations are welcome.
