The Alzheimer’s Society Dementia Café is relaunching with a special event attended by Mayor Keith Dolby on February 25 at The Source from 10am to 12 noon.

It will be an activity based group and free to attend meeting on the second and fourth Wednesday of the month from 10am to 12 noon.

There are thought to be about 1,700 people living with dementia in North Kesteven and the new cafe will provide people with dementia and carers a platform to try out activities and talk openly about living with the condition within a relaxed and informal environment.

Phil Measures of the Alzheimer’s Society said: “Dementia is a huge challenge facing Lincolnshire but we believe that this Dementia Café in Sleaford, and other groups we are launching across the county will make a real difference.
