Dementia Cafe To Open At Willow Bank Residential Home

We are very excited to announce that Willow Bank Residential Home in Pershore, Worcestershire is opening a Dementia Café, registered with the Alzheimer’s Society to support the local community. ‘The Cotswold Café’ will be a free of charge, safe and supportive place for those affected by Dementia, their families and health professionals to come together and talk about their experiences. The Cotswold Café will hold it’s Opening Party on the 13th February and will subsequently be open to the public on the second Wednesday of every month.

The team at Willow Bank have decorated the Cotswold Café to replicate a 1950s café with images taken from all over the Cotswolds adorning its walls. Sarah, Willow Bank’s chef, will be creating a selection of special cakes for every event and there will also be activities for our visitors to join in with.

New manager, Carole Hall says “The opening of the Dementia Cafe is an exciting and positive step for Willow Bank. It will be a place for those living in the community with dementia and their carers to meet others in the same situation, where they can also seek advice from people who have many years’ experience supporting people whose lives have been affected by this disease.”

Please let us know if you are interested in attending by calling 01386 556844 or emailing willowbank@bucklandcare.co.uk.
