Barnsley Alzheimer's 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 in Barnsley include Dementia Adviser support; Memory Café and Singing for the Brain.  We also provide a range of drop in and information stands at various venues across the borough; our services provide both practical support and an essential point of human contact.

Our experienced Dementia Advisers 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.
