Dementia Catch-up Cuppa

Good times are shared over a cuppa.

The social gathering of people with dementia and family carers enjoyed a social catch-up at the Nambour RSL on 10th September, 2020.

Ken, a family care said, “it was lovely”. We enjoyed some laughter and shared some feelings of loss. The group members had some interesting stories form world travels from England and South Africa. Kath had been a professional singer and her hubby is now in a residential care facility.

To be with others who share the journey of dementia and caring is very special.

We looked for the purple rose set up at the tables reserved for us.

If you are interested in attending the next one. It will be on November 12th, 2020. 10.15 am. Please register
