Volunteers wanted for Alzheimer’s Café


A new Alzheimer’s Dementia Café is starting in Skegness - and volunteers are need to help.

People are asked to give just a few hours each month to serve refreshments, help run activities and chat to people with dementia and carers.

Phil Measures, volunteering Officer for the Alzheimer’s Society in Lincolnshire, said: “We’re confident that this new Dementia Café for Skegness is going to make a real difference to the growing number of people who are living with the condition locally.”

Alzheimer’s Society’s Dementia Cafés are free to attend and provide people with dementia and carers a platform to try out activities and talk openly about living with dementia within a relaxed and informal environment.

The Skegness Dementia Café meets on the third Thursday of the month from 10am–12noon at the Storehouse on North Parade.

For more information, or if you are interested in volunteering at the new group, call Phil on 01522 692681.
