Supporting people with dementia and their cares in St Ives.
We are a group of volunteers several of whom have had Alzheimer’s Society training, providing a social support for people with dementia and their carers in St Ives and the local area. However, we are separate from the Society but do work closely with the local team.
• We organize monthly lunches at Slepe Hall Hotel, in St Ives, on
the first Wednesday of the month 12.30-14.00. Details from Felicity on 01480 392806. £10 for a pre ordered 2 course meal and at The Barley Mow Pub, in Hartford, on the last Tuesday of the month 12.30-14.00. Details from Ken on
01480 380323. A chance for people with dementia and their carers to get out and about and enjoy each other’s company. Also, we encourage carers whose loved ones have died or who are in full time residential care to come.
• We also organize a monthly Singing Café known as Memory Lane Music
at the Crossways Centre Ramsey Rd St Ives on the second Monday of the
month.10.00-12.00 Here, a variety of styles and eras of songs are sung in a group setting, with lyric books available, and coffee, tea and biscuits available throughout. This event welcomes voluntary donations (but is not
essential) and is a guaranteed mood-lifter!' Carers can leave those people they care for and they will be safe in our hands! Details from Ken 01480 380323 and George 01480 463869.
Both of these activities are fun and supportive and can be a welcome break for carers as well as a chance to support each other.
Please contact George on 01480 463869 if you would like to know more. If these activities appeal to you either because you’ve been diagnosed with dementia or your loved one has, OR you’d like to volunteer to help, do call us.”
