Welcome to our Community

Umbrella Dementia Cafés are a network of informal and multigenerational community social groups for families and people living dementia.

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.  It’s no different for people experiencing dementia.

Through our 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.

We are kickstarting our wonderful social groups in 2021 with supportive COVID safe processes. We follow all our local government directives so we can safely support our regular and new members every week.

ABOUT US

Our COVID-19 Affect

During lockdown periods all our café groups move their weekly social fix to online catch-ups and enjoy one-hour Zoom cafés.

Since the 30th of April 2020 we’ve facilitated and hosted 161 Zoom cafes for both our members and volunteers, all in the name of ‘staying connected’.

Over the past year, we have learnt how to engage people with dementia through our personal knowledge and understanding of each persons interests. Our expertise recently extended to our new Sorrento Dementia Café, whereby the entire café social group was established online!

For those who don’t have the technical resources to participate in one of our five weekly zoom cafés, we empower our members to stay connected through our popular WhatsApp group chats or enjoy 1:1 routine phone calls from one of our three Café Coordinators.

Our experience delivering online cafés have enriched our entire organisation and shown how valuable our 'village' model truly is for people who live with dementia.
