Memory Matters South West are making great progress with the Moments Café which aims to reduce the stigma behind dementia. The build is well under way and the fit out of the cafe and meeting rooms will start soon with the aim to open its doors in March.
By bringing a support network to the local high street, Moments on New George Street Plymouth, hopes to increase support for the illness and help the general public understand a little better the complexities of Dementia and Alzheimers disease.
Moments Cafe aims to not only help those living with dementia and their family members relax and reminisce on the good ol' days, but educate the general public about the disease.
Co - director Kate Smith who has run the organisation alongside Laura Walker for eight years, said: "We wanted to bring people who are linked with the disease together in one place, but we also welcome the entire community. Our big ambition is to get one built in every city - its a simple and straight-forward idea but hopefully it will take off."
Memory Matters engaged in Crowdfunding to assist with the development of the café and exceeded its target within its allocated timeframe and went on to a 'stretched target' of £16,000 up until December 21, 2016 which they also exceeded.
Danfloor are excited to see how the project progresses and are keen to see ECONOMIX fitted within the Dementia Information Space and associated rooms above the café.
