Dementia cafe meets at Motherwell’ Fir Park


NHS Lanarkshire’s Dementia Cafe will hold its next meeting next Friday, March 7.

The cafe, which is held monthly at Motherwell Football Club, is for those worried about their memory or have a diagnosis of dementia.

Cafe organiser, NHS Lanarkshire community nurse Hazel Boyle, said: “We want to reduce the stigma of dementia diagnosis and give those with dementia – and other memory problems – their families and carers, a place where they can gather, share their experience and get some practical support in a friendly setting.”

Among those present to offer help and advice are specialist doctors, memory service nurses, an advocacy worker, an occupational therapist as well as representatives from Alzheimer Scotland and Carers Together.

The cafe is open from 1pm to 4 pm in MFC’s Centenary Suite.
