Dementia café reopens with Christmas cheer

The Forget Me Not Cafe at Umina will reopen next week just in time to celebrate Christmas.

It will open its doors on Monday, December 13 from 10am to noon.

The cafe, operated by the Rotary Club of Brisbane Water and its volunteers, took a four-month break over lockdown due to COVID-19 restrictions.

Since starting more than a year ago, the cafe has offered companionship for people with dementia still being cared for at home and by their family carers.

Participants can enjoy light refreshments and participate in activities such as puzzles, colouring and light exercise.

The Forget Me Not café operates out of the CWA Hall at 2 Sydney Ave, every second and fourth Monday of the month.

There are still places for people to join in. Contact Di on 0404147743 or Heather on 0414446177 for more information.
