Forget Me Not Memory Café Newsletter

  1. 1. BASILDON MEMORY CAFE Issue 1 Basildon Memory Cafe Charity Forget me not! " One day, a cure for Dementia will come, and when that day arrives, Dementia itself will become just a mere memory itself, How ironic is that?” – Norman McNamara Basildon Memory Cafe Charity Newsletter Issue Date; September 2015 Issue 1

  3. 3. BASILDON MEMORY CAFE NEWSLETTER ISSUE 1 3 How the “Forget Me Not” Memory Café began Up until Dec 2013, for 16 years I worked at the Fern Street Settlement Charity based in East London as an Assistant Manager of the luncheon club for the elderly which offered activities, outreach, help & support. During those 16 years I became very concerned at the plight of the elderly and undertook courses including Dementia Awareness as this is a dramatically growing area of need which I wanted to address. I did my research, thought about what I wanted to do and drew up a proposal. In Oct 2014 I went back to the Charity’s committee and asked if they would consider funding a project I wanted to get off the ground, that being a Memory Café for those diagnosed with dementia and other memory problems and their carers. I researched the concept and found a majority of café were only run on a fortnightly or monthly basis, I wanted my one to be unique...to be every week and offer mind stimulating activities as well as an outreach & information service. After many meetings the Trustees agreed to give me limited funds for the café, as a pilot scheme for six months, after which, it was to be self funding. Beginning of January 2015 I contacted Karen Butler ( Sheltered Housing Manager) at Basildon Council explained what I was trying to achieve and would she/Basildon Council be interested being a part of it. More regular meetings took place over a month or so and with the help of Tricia Radmore (Day Centre’s Co-ordinator at The George Hurd Centre), Madhumita Bose Thomas (Visual Artist) our plans came together. On the 6th February 2015 the “Forget Me Not” Memory Café was born. We began with just 4 people, today we have just under 40 people registered. The café is growing bigger than I ever expected within a short period of time. We are now known as an “Unincorporated Association” we have very good relationships with all our members and their families, help & support of volunteers and staff at the George Hurd Centre, built sound partnerships with other professionals and dementia agencies. We are and will continue to grow from strength to strength. Tracy Godden
  4. 4. BASILDON MEMORY CAFE NEWSLETTER ISSUE 1 4 Benefits of keeping active and maintaining everyday skills Keeping occupied and stimulated can improve quality of life for the person with dementia, as well as for those around them. Activities can act as an opportunity for fun and playfulness. They can also encourage independence, social inclusion, communication or expression of feelings. Benefits to the person with dementia  Activities can bring enjoyment and pleasure.  By remaining involved and active, a person with dementia can maintain their skills and independence for longer.  Activities can help people to express how they are feeling and relieve the symptoms of anxiety and depression.  Activities can increase social interaction and reduce isolation.  Sharing an activity with others may promote shared interests, increased interactions and understanding.  An activity may help a person feel important and valued because it relates to past roles and experiences, such as raising children or helping around the home.  Shared activity can promote a sense of belonging.  Leading a physically active lifestyle can have a significant impact on wellbeing. Exercise is beneficial for physical and mental health and can improve the quality of life for people at all stages of dementia. Benefits to carers, family and friends Taking part in activities with a person with dementia can help maintain a good relationship.  Activities can offer a break from the everyday caring routine.  Shared activities can provide mutual enjoyment and companionship, which can support the relationship between the person with dementia and their carer.  Activities can encourage closeness between a person with dementia and people around them and improve feelings of comfort and security.  Engaging a person with dementia in meaningful activities may improve behaviour that challenges.
