Newton Abbot Memory Cafe

The Memory Café is currently suspended due to the on going Covid situation and the Café will reopen once government guidance allows.

Memory Cafés can be found all over Devon with many being independent of large organisations.

They’re run by local people for local people providing those living with memory problems and their carers, the opportunity to get support within an informal setting.

Everyone is guaranteed a warm welcome.

Each month a different activity will be offered, all helping to stimulate the memory.

Jackie our Carers Support Worker is on hand for a one-to-one chat about any concerns there may be.

The afternoon is free to all though we always have a small raffle table, and it frequently ends with a song or two.

My Memory Box

By Ivy Simmons (85 yrs)

Whilst browsing through my memory box a treasured gift to me

I came across some photographs that jogged my memory.

With three sisters and a brother, we used to rise at dawn

Because we lived beside a farm where the farmer reaped his corn.

First came the war and then the peace which some will never know who lie in the tranquillity that helps the world to grow.
