October begins with The International Day of Older Persons on the 1st . Later in the month, Memory Lane Cafe is holding an event to recognise the enormous contribution of senior unpaid carers in supporting people living with dementia.
In conjunction with Bridge Community, we are hosting an afternoon tea, information and support event for unpaid carers of people living with dementia on Sunday 16th October at the Maurice Jagger Centre in Halifax.
Carers, ex-carers and their cared-for will be invited to come along for an afternoon of:-
- live music
- wonderful cakes & scones
- information and support from a range of service providers
With the aid of a grant from Calderdale Council we are making this a free event – but we ask that people book their place(s) in advance. We’ll be publicising the event more widely over the coming days
