Manx Decaf – monthly cafes where those who have dementia or memory problems, their relatives and carers can meet to socialise and receive support hold an event every month at Ramsey Town Hall from 2pm till 4pm, on the second Thursday of every month.
Volunteers, including trained professionals in memory problems, are able to offer guidance and support to those with dementia, as well as their carers and their relatives; this ensures that the best possible advice is given and that those affected don't come to feel isolated by the condition. There's also the opportunity for those with dementia or memory problems to discuss referral to clinics and other services within the Department of Health and the Department of Social Care via the cafes.
Other Decaf events are at :-
Douglas; Whispers Bar, Palace Hotel and Casino – 2pm till 4pm, last Friday of every month
Port Erin; Cherry Orchard Hotel – 2pm till 4pm, second Wednesday of every month
There is a donation of £2.00 for tea, coffee and cakes.
