OUR FIRST CAFE

 

Our first cafe was on the 14th August 2019 and we welcomed 3 families and 4 volunteers.  After being together for only 1 hour, we were empowered to name our own cafe, design a logo and create a slogan!  Now we have our own identity.  

 

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. 

 

HERE OUR OFFICIAL POSTER!

 

 

 

South Neighbourhood House and Umbrella Dementia Cafés Ltd have partnered to provide the Box Hill South community with localised support, connection, education and awareness about dementia.  Together we empower and engaging with local volunteers to build amazing café environments in the effort to reduce social isolation and stigma associated to living with a dementia disease.  

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

All our 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.
