Last Friday of every month from 1.30-3.30pm
The Alzheimer Society of Ireland works in partnership with UCC and St Finbars Hospital to provide this Alzheimer Cafe.
Alzheimer Cafes provide a warm and welcoming space for people with dementia, their family and friends and social and health care professionals to meet, exchange ideas and learnings.
The Cafe is based on an international model and usually opens monthly in the early evening. Some cafes open during the day, and all provide light refreshments and a mix of education and support.
The cafes provide an informal way to meet others living with dementia and to meet health and social care professionals. Usually an expert speaker is invited each month to talk to the Cafe about a topic of interest, however the cafe is also a space to chat and enjoy a social occasion in a supportive environment.
