Newton Abbot Memory Café

The Memory Café is held every month on the 3rd Thursday afternoon from 2.15-4.00pm

A Memory Café is a free ‘drop in’ service for anyone who has concerns about their memory or the memory of a loved one. It is open to people of all ages.

Come in and get: information, advice, support, somebody to talk to, a cup of tea (or coffee), some mental stimulation. Please bring with you a partner, family member or a friend.

Who runs the Café? The café is run by staff and experienced volunteers from KingsCare League of Friends. The volunteers are there to welcome you, look after you and serve refreshments.

There is no charge for refreshments but donations are always welcome to help cover costs.

We run one of the many Memory Cafes that have been established by different volunteer groups across the country in response to the growing demand for services for people experiencing memory loss. They are a place where people with a formal diagnosis of dementia or who are worried about their memory can come together for peer support, advice and information in a friendly and informal setting. Different activities take place each month and our Mental Health support worker is on hand to offer advice and support.


Transport links: The number 12 and the number 78 bus stop outside the church. Newton Abbot Railway Station is a short walk away, the Church being on the corner of Queen Street and the Avenue.
