Welcome to our Community
Ten minutes of social interaction a day helps improve the wellbeing for people with 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.
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.
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.
Help brighten the lives of people living with dementia
Umbrella Dementia Cafés create safe, welcoming and supportive environments for our community experiencing dementia.
Post COVID, we’ve had a 50% increase in the number of people living with dementia requiring our support.
In response, we aspire to double the number of cafés we host each fortnight and we need your help more than ever.
Our great work is made possible by kind-hearted donors who share our vision to empower people with dementia.
Umbrella Dementia Cafés is a deductible gift recipient.
It’s with enormous pride, we present to you our very own Umbrella Dementia products.
Tapping into our years of experience and long relationships with each person who has ever attended our dementia cafés, we have tailor-made our own dementia-friendly and age-appropriate products for individuals, couples, families and anyone supporting a person with dementia, who wants to stay connected.
