Box Hill South Neighbourhood House and Umbrella Dementia Cafés Ltd have partnered to creating another safe place for families, couples and people living with dementia to meet regularly. 


Box Hill South Dementia Cafes Information Day was a wonderful success. 


We welcomed in the local Box Hill South community yesterday and lovingly introduced them to our village model social concept that supports families and individuals living with dementia. We became very supportive of one-another quickly as we shared personal conversation about what dementia meant to each of us. Then together, as a connected team, we created our very own Umbrella Dementia Cafes space and shared a beautiful meal together. 



If you’d like to be a volunteer for this cafe please email or call Pam on 9898 8270 who is the Manager at Box Hill South Neighbourhood House.

Together we will provide our community with localised support, connection, education and awareness about dementia in the Box Hill South community.  We will achieve this by empowering and engaging with local volunteers to build amazing café environments in the effort to reduce social isolation and stigma associated with living with a dementia disease.  








All Cafés include information about care organisations and services in our local area.  You can comfortably browse over the information table while relaxing with a cuppa. 








With the support of the Victorian State Government Pick My Project Initiative we are bringing Box Hill South Neighbourhood House under our Umbrella.  Together we all share a passion to improve the social health, family connections and overall well-being for people living with dementia.



Our Umbrella Dementia Cafés at Box Hill South Neighbourhood House will open every 2nd Wednesday of the month from 14th August from 12noon - 2pm
