Welcome to our Community

Ten minutes of social interaction a day helps improve the wellbeing for people with dementia.

Umbrella Dementia Cafés is a charity bringing hope, connection and a better quality of life for people living with dementia and their family carer.

We believe the key to personal wellbeing is social connectedness. It’s about having a community support network around you, understanding, accepting and including you.

Umbrella Dementia Cafés are a network of informal and multigenerational community peer support groups, called 'cafés', designed for families and people living dementia to improve social health and well-being.

We have 5 dementia cafés in Victoria and help other community organisations establish their own dementia cafe.

Through our dementia cafés we empower people living with dementia to regain their autonomy, boost their self-esteem and improve their wellbeing, while providing support to those in the caring role.
