The first Forget Me Not Café session on February 8 was a success with members at the Rotary Club of Brisbane Water looking forward to continuing the Peninsula community initiative.
The café, held at the Umina Beach CWA, hall focuses on providing a safe place for people living with dementia and their carers to visit, socialise and interact with others.
Rotary President, Peter Mote, said the café provided opportunities for people to connect with others who understood what they were going through.
“I am overjoyed to report that the Forget Me Not Café’s first meeting was a success,” Mote said.
“(At) the first session we had four customers, and the whole team—two other customers had a logistical problem and so missed this meeting but will attend the second meeting on February 22.
“We are greatly encouraged by the success of the first café.”
