Local MP, Nadhim Zahawi, visited Alcester Café in October, to see for himself how it had increased in number since his last visit, what improvements had been implemented and the vision for dementia care in Alcester.
After talking to various members at the café he sat with founder chairman Carole Zambonini and day care treasurer Margery Pickering to discuss how he could support them and the volunteer day care team with the next step – affordable day care for those with dementia. The main problem they have is finding a site or suitable premises where day care could be held.
Day care will give carers some time for respite whilst the person with dementia is looked after in a friendly and safe environment. For more information regarding day care or the café contact Carole 01789 488088.
