The Eastbourne 'Drop In' Dementia Cafe
What is the Eastbourne Dementia Café?
The Eastbourne Dementia Café is hub in Eastbourne that people with dementia and their families can visit for advice and signposting to the services that you need most. Hosted at two locations:
The second Monday of the month at Shades Restaurant, The Beacon
The last Friday of the month at Caffe Nero, Terminus Road
From 9.30am until 12.30pm. It’s free and we'll buy the coffee (or other refreshment).
Why does Eastbourne need a Dementia Café?
Having worked with many, many people seeking help for loved ones diagnosed with dementia over the years, the team at Ivy House wanted to create a space where people could access the help and support they need to cope with living with dementia. Our vision for the café is to create an opportunity for people to talk with qualified and experienced professionals without having to make an appointment. The Eastbourne Dementia Café is a safe and relaxed environment that is easy to access, and you’ll always be greeted by a friendly face.
How is it funded?
Ivy House is the grateful recipient of bequests and we reinvest this money into community initiatives to support families living with dementia. The Eastbourne Dementia Café is just one of the projects we are investing in. To find out more visit the Facebook page.
