Dementia support cafe launched

Jewish Care is launching a café and peer support group in Westcliff for dementia sufferers and their carers.

Funded by Southend Borough Council and established in partnership with the Alzheimer's Society, the service opens next week at Jewish Care's Southend and Westcliff Jewish Community Centre.

Centre manager Graham Freeman said: "People with dementia, and those who care for them, should have the opportunity to share experiences."
