Empowering couples and people living with dementia to stay connected to their community.
Umbrella Dementia Cafés bring hope, connection and a better quality of life for people and their care partner experiencing dementia in their community.
The cafés were founded with the purpose of improving the wellbeing of people living with dementia. Inextricably linked to these people are their carers, family and community.
The Umbrella Dementia Café also shares some courageous stories written by its members. Please take the time to read this personal encounter bravely written by the wife of a Care Connect client: The roads are unmade and unmarked.
“I wish more people knew that dementia is a road trip, the roads are unmade and unmarked, full of potholes and unexpected turns. There is no map for this journey, we travel in the dark.”
Please call your Care Manager if you are interested to learn more about how your Home Care Package can support community involvement.
