Gravesend Residents Enjoy Outing to Local Memory Cafe

Residents of Edward Moore House Residential Care Home in Gravesend enjoyed a trip out to a memory café in Northfleet, a safe and welcoming environment for people living with memory problems.

Accompanied by staff of the Trinity Road residential care home, a group of residents enjoyed a visit to the local charity run café, which provides a relaxed environment and the opportunity to find out about support services, or even just chat to other likeminded people.

The residents enjoyed a cup of tea and slice of cake, whilst getting to know some of the other visitors.

Run by Alzheimer’s and Dementia Support Services (ADSS), the memory cafes provide an informal and social environment for people with concerns about their memory and offer a welcoming and warm atmosphere where everyone is included. The cafes feature a variety of activities including guest speakers, entertainment, and refreshments, all provided free of charge in a safe and friendly environment.

Chris Hutchinson, General Manager of Edward Moore House said: “ADSS provide valuable support to people living with memory problems in Northfleet and Gravesend, so we were keen to show our support and visit the café. It was also great for the residents to be able to chat with other people living in a similar situation to them.”
