Welcome to Launceston Memory Cafe
A brief introduction
The Launceston Memory Cafe, the first in Cornwall, was opened in October 2007 and set up to provide a regular amenity for people who experience memory problems. Equally important, it offers opportunities for carers to meet other carers who may be sharing similar circumstances.
The café is run on a very friendly and informal basis by trained and experienced volunteers. There is a very warm welcome for visitors, with a choice of refreshments and a couple of hours to relax in a supportive environment and enjoy a regular break from the otherwise everyday routine.
A warm welcome awaits
Trips down memory lane are often triggered by some of the optional activities during the afternoon which can include music, books, puzzles and just general reminiscing through conversation about things from the past. Seasonal activities can include trips out for cream teas, barbecues and visits to places of interest as well as celebrating Christmas and our anniversary with parties
