Dementia Nurse Nic Lavery in the day service lounge at Willow Wood.

People are always surprised to find out just how much we have to offer here at Willow Wood, and not everyone is aware that we have an award-winning dementia service, which offers an outreach service to our community in Tameside and Glossop.

As part of this service we hold a Dementia Carers Support Café on the second and fourth Friday of every month.  There’s no need to book, just drop in between 1-3pm and you’ll be assured of a warm welcome.

Nic Lavery, our dementia nurse says, “Anyone caring for someone with dementia can call in for advice, support or just for a coffee, cake and a chat in a friendly atmosphere.  You can come by yourself or with your loved one and sometimes just meeting and chatting to others in a similar situation can be all you need.  However, our trained volunteers and I will be here to offer any assistance or guidance you may require.”

If you would like more information about our dementia service, just ring 0161 330 1100 and ask for Nic.  Alternatively, call round to the next café where you can relax with people who understand just what you’re going through in a supportive, non-judgemental environment.
