If you are a carer, why not join us any Tuesday morning between 10 am and 12 pm in the safe, relaxed and comfortable environment of The Brewhouse (by Sainsbury's car park in the town centre). It offers help and a friendly ear. So come and join us for a coffee and a biscuit - not forgetting a few laughs along the way.
The Carers+ Café is for all who care for someone with a physical or mental disability. Here you can chat and share experiences with others facing similar challenges. Help is also on hand from Age UK and Citizens Advice Bureau.
The gang's all here!
Carers+ Café visit to Memory Lane and lunch at the National Memorial Arboretum.
A very short history
Burton Rotary Club opened the café in June 2015 as a 'Memory Café', meeting in Crossley House next to Burton Market Hall. Initially it was open every Tuesday and Wednesday, from 10.00 to 2.00, to support people living with dementia and their carers. Tea, coffee, cakes and scones supplied by Summerhouse Bakery helped to provide a relaxed and welcoming atmosphere for people to meet up and talk over their problems. Staff from Queen's Hospital, the Alzheimer's Society, Citizens' Advice, and Dementia Care were on hand to give professional assistance.
In January 2017 the Memory Café opened its doors to all carers and moved to The Brewhouse which offers a safe, relaxed and comfortable environment. The move brought with it a change of name.
