Rosemary & Time Cafe

Rosemary Time Cafe Social Media Event 180619

Rosemary & Time is a new café, especially designed to support people living with dementia and their family members.

The café welcomes families, couples and individuals living with dementia to connect over a casual coffee and cake.   It is a safe, inclusive, non-judgemental space with an emphasis on socialising and feeling relaxed.

It is also a place where attendees can learn more about dementia, explore ways to meaningfully interact and engage, enjoy stimulating activities, and build support networks and friendships.

Falling under the umbrella of a memory café; a welcoming place for individuals with Alzheimer's or any type of the dementias, Rosemary & Time assists in filling an unmet need in the Cranbourne and Wheelers Hill areas, and surrounding communities.

Rosemary & Time is being supported and funded by Lifeview as a way of giving back to the communities, in which we operate.

Localised social support groups such as Rosemary & Time play a crucial role in promoting a person’s emotional and spiritual wellbeing while living at home with dementia or caring for someone with dementia. Going to a café is a great, non-threatening way to begin to access services, to meet people and to share experiences.

It is a safe space for carers, who can sometimes feel anxious about taking a person living with dementia to an everyday café, to relax and enjoy the company of others, knowing they and their loved one are supported.

There are currently two Rosemary & Time Cafés and each month there is a different theme and focus to the morning.
