Barnsley Alzheimers Society

Alzheimer's Society staff and volunteers provide both local information and over 2,000 services across England, Wales and Northern Ireland to people affected by dementia in their communities.

Our local services include day care and home care for people with dementia, as well as support and befriending services to help partners and families cope with the demands of caring.

From Alzheimer's Café's and innovative 'Singing for the Brain' sessions to memory-book projects and group outings, our services provide both practical support and an essential point of human contact.

Our experienced Dementia Support Workers can provide you with personalised practical and emotional support with people with dementia and their carers.

We currently hold two regular sessions detailed below:

Dementia Café

You can chat and share your experiences about your diagnosis of dementia and what that means to you with others and health professionals.

Dementia cafés provide useful information in a structured and relaxed setting that gives the opportunity for people with dementia, families and carers to ask questions to the health professionals and learn from the experiences of people in similar situations.

Come and join us on the last Thursday of every month, 11:00-13:00.
