Memory Cafe is a super relaxed, fun and creative space where members of the community who have dementia meet up and do various activities alongside volunteers. Penryn Memory Cafe meets on the 1st and 3rd Thursday of the month from 2-4pm in the Penryn Methodist church hall (pop us an email if you want more detailed instructions on how to get there.) Each week we do a different activity some of which include; painting, singing, chair exercise (!), flower arranging and card making.
Everyone loves having the students around and the volunteering is very relaxed. Typically we help with crafts (although sometimes the older people teach us things - like sewing) and serve the tea and cake (then eat cake ourselves.)
If you can't make every session that's fine - it's very flexible. Just turn up if and when you can.
For any questions or extra info just drop us an email at firstname.lastname@example.org and we'll get back to you asap.
