Norfolk Community Foundation Video of Wymondham Dementia Support Group

Here’s a video created by the Norfolk Community Foundation.

Wymondham Dementia Support Group from Norfolk Community Foundation.

Wymondham Dementia Support Group was formed in 2008 with the objective of promoting the well-being and quality of life of people with dementia and their carers in the County of Norfolk. It is a small local charity responding to local need.

The Pabulum Café provides a friendly meeting place where those with dementia and their carers can come together to receive support, guidance and information in a relaxed atmosphere whilst enjoying refreshments and light lunches. Activities include reminiscence sessions, various games, craft work and quizzes and a ‘Singing Café’. They also provide tuition to members on access to the internet, e-mail and general computer training. When necessary they can provide and facilitate advocacy for members who might be having difficulty obtaining benefits or other services.

Carers also meet to support each other and share experiences and help each other devise coping strategies. During this time those with dementia are supported by volunteers.

Each Café session is under the direction of a trained Organiser who is supported by a team of volunteers all of whom are vetted and trained in dementia awareness.
