Sid Valley Memory Cafe was started in 2010. It is a friendly, social meeting place for people with all forms of memory problems and their families and friends. You can come along for advice and support if you, or someone you know, is suffering the challenges of memory loss, or is newly diagnosed with some sort of dementia.
We meet at Twyford House (Coburg Road) in Sidmouth every Wednesday of the month, from 2.15 – 4.00pm.
One of the most important aspects of the Sid Valley Memory Cafe is that it provides a chance to have a cup of tea (or coffee!) and biscuits, whilst chatting with friends who are in a similar situation. It is also a chance to connect with your local healthcare professionals, or from time to time, to hear professionals from support associations.
We offer a wide variety of activities:
- Music: We have a regular sing-along and provide a keyboard accompaniment and our own songbook
- Games: This includes skittles, quoits, indoor bowls and scrabble
- Readings, recitals, talks, quizzes and reminiscence discussions
- Outings around the Sidmouth area … Many of which are reported on this website!
Please note that you do not have to take part if you do not want to. You can just sit and chat or listen to what is going on around you.
