Supporting memory cafes for people with dementia and their carers across Devon

DMCC (Devon Memory Cafe Consortium) is a membership organisation which aims to support memory cafes across Devon to provide a quality service to people living with dementia and their carers.

Our mission is to provide our members with quality information, guidance and training on running memory cafes, and also opportunities to meet, learn and share with each other. We encourage and support our members to achieve our Memory Cafe Quality Assurance Mark. We always welcome new memory cafes to join DMCC.

What is a memory cafe?

A memory cafe offers practical and emotional support, information, guidance and perhaps most importantly, the hand of friendship to people living with dementia and their carers, in the local communities where they live.

For many, a visit to their local memory cafe is the only regular support they receive following a diagnosis of dementia. The social contact and peer support gained from spending time with others who have experience of the difficult everyday reality of dementia is invaluable.

Our short film below offers further insights into what a memory cafe is and what it does – and it’s chance to see a memory cafe session in action.
