About this cause
Know Dementia is a Sussex-based charity providing much-needed support for people living with dementia, family members and carers. The support provided enables people living with dementia and their family members and carers to have quality time together, build new relationships with others in a similar situation and engage in meaningful activities that encourage social inclusion.
How this cause brings people in the community together
Our Dementia Cafe is open to all members of the family affected, including grandchildren. The sessions are run by volunteers from the local community. We have several carers who have gone on to become volunteers, as they have wanted to remain a part of the community. The Dementia Cafe gives reassurance to the whole community that local people affected by the disease are being supported.
