Brain Health Café - to support people whilst they are on the waiting list for the memory clinic
The aim of the project is to improve the experience of people awaiting a possible diagnosis of mild cognitive impairment or dementia.
This would subsequently improve engagement on the diagnosis pathway both with clinical providers and local voluntary service providers in the community.
What is the Brain Health Café?
A warm and friendly café with free refreshments!
The café will happen weekly but on the first Friday of each month we will hold open days where a variety of local providers will be at the café to talk and offer support, advice and activities relating to brain health and memory concerns.
Who is the café for?
Anyone who has any concerns about their memory or wants to know more about how to keep their brain healthy.
You may have been invited by your GP service or the Memory Clinic, or you may have just seen it and want to come along. Everyone is welcome!
Who might be there to offer support and advice?
Every week there will be support and advice available from a variety of local providers such as social prescribers, health trainers, memory clinic nurses, York carers centre and more
