A new café has opened in Wirral to support people dealing with dementia Café Connect is the first dementia Friendly café to open in Heswall.
The café opened on November 5 and aims to provide a welcoming, friendly and informal environment for carers and those they are caring for, with dedicated listeners, refreshments and advice.
Members of the Heswall parish teamed up with the Methodist and Catholic Churches along with Mid Wirral Rotary Club to develop a team of over 40 volunteers which means that the café can run on a weekly basis.
Rev Jacky Wise said: “We have a number of people in our local parish who know someone living with dementia. One of my parishioners, Norman Waddell, was originally inspired by the Cheadle and District Rotary Club café and because of his own experiences, he told me about it and we decided to get one up and running.”
