Good to see some creative thinking in opening a café that welcomes people with dementia. The Design Council article explains how this café started with two women who were working in a dementia care facility. They wanted to do more for people living in the community. And so begins the story of the Moments Café.
With financial support from the local council and a crowdfunding campaign they raised sufficient funds to get the Moments Cafe up and running. Moments Café is a Social Enterprise based in the heart of Plymouth City Centre. The offer a safe environment for people to meet, eat and socialise and all of the profits go towards Memory Matters.
The Café has an office facility above and this is used as an administrative centre for the additional activities they run. The article is one case study in the Design Council Transform Ageing series.
