Dementia & Alzheimers Support Group

The Dementia and Alzheimer’s Support Group 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.

The group work closely with the Alzheimer’s Society and organise monthly get togethers to give people with dementia and their carers a chance to get out and about as well as enjoy each other’s company.  Carers whose loved ones have died or who are in full time residential care are also encouraged to come.

The team organise get together’s for lunches which take place at the Slepe Hall Hotel in St Ives on the first Wednesday of the month 12.30pm-2pm (contact Felicity on 01480 392806) as well as meals out at The Barley Mow Pub in Hartford on the last Tuesday of the month 12.30pm-2pm (contact Ken on 01480 380323).

As well as lunches, the team organises a monthly Singing Café known as Memory Lane Music which is at the Crossways Centre Ramsey Rd St Ives on the second Monday of the month between 10am-12pm. 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.  For more information please contact Ken on 01480 380323 or George on 01480 463869.

These activities arranged by the group are fun and supportive and can be a welcome break for carers as well as a chance to support each other. To know more about the group and the events they hold, please contact George on 01480 463869 if you would like to know more.
