The Belmont becomes second dementia café in partnership with Worcester Warriors Community Foundation
From the 26th of April, The Belmont care home will become the second venue to host the successful dementia café, which will take place at the home every two weeks from 10:30am to 12:00pm. The team are very much looking forward to hosting this event, welcoming in the wider community and establishing the home as a pillar of support for those in Worcester who are living, or know someone living with dementia.
The Worcester Warriors Community Foundation first set up their Dementia café in 2017, with the aim of providing a space for people within the community to meet, share support and get to know one another. The work that the foundation does is brilliant and the team at The Belmont are proud to continue developing their relationships with the founders of the initiative and to be a part of the support network that their dementia café offers.
The Belmont are also proud to be a foundation sponsor, to further support the growing demand within the community and to reach more people living with dementia and their families, welcoming them into an inclusive and supportive space with other understanding individuals.
The caring, friendly and professional team at The Belmont are eager to become a supportive community hub for Worcester residents, offering valuable resources and information from an experienced team, all within a comfortable, relaxing space. In addition to the dementia café, the home is also hosting an interactive dementia session on the 3rd of May, run by Paul Gaskell, Director of Wellbeing & Dementia Services. Those interested are encouraged to call and book a space.
Tommy Fellows, CRM, and Sandie Preece, Home Manager, commented:
“We are so excited to be supporting with an additional dementia café in partnership with everyone at the foundation, we look forward to supporting families and those living with dementia and hosting these regular opportunities to help visitors meet new friends, get support and above all have fun in a relaxed setting.”
Carol Hart, Foundation CEO, Warriors Community Foundation, commented:
“The Warriors Community Foundation is delighted to expand its service provision for people living with Dementia. Since our start up café based at Sixways Stadium began in 2017, we have seen an increase in need for the type of service we offer. We are now in a position to offer this service to more people out in the community alongside partners such as The Belmont. The Belmont has second to none facilities and we can’t wait to start delivering our fun and engaging programme of activity to their residents and the wider community at absolutely no cost.”
