A memory café is somewhere where people with dementia and their
carers can visit to support each other and share information. The
groups usually offer reminiscence-based activities. Health and
social care professionals are also on hand to answer questions and
offer advice in an informal setting. There is a list of the memory
cafes in Cornwall below.
