A café which aims to offer a friendly and safe environment for people living with dementia and their carers will open its doors for the first time in Devonport tomorrow morning.

The Reflections Café will be held at the Devonport Senior Citizens Club, on Victoria Parade, between 10 am and midday every second Wednesday and should enough support exist the café will consider opening every Wednesday.

It is an initiative of the Munnew Day Centre, a division of Meercroft Care which supports those living with dementia and their carers.

The Devonport City Council is supporting the initiative and funding has been received from the Lions Club of Devonport.

Local education institutions will be providing the food on a roster basis.

The concept was based on a similar café which currently operates weekly in Ulverstone as well as in other towns and cities on the mainland.

It will be a friendly and safe environment where people living with dementia and their carers can be supported and learn about the services which are available to support them.

Munnew’s volunteers would be on hand to provide support and assistance.

Supporting the café is the first step in Council’s vision to be seen as a dementia-friendly Council.

Munnew plays a very important role within our community and we are delighted to be able to partner with them in this venture.

Anyone seeking more information can contact Munnew on 6421 0111 or Council’s Community Services Department on 6424 0511.
