THERE were smiles all round as the first memory cafe in Warsash was declared a success.

People suffering from dementia and memory loss, and their carers, went along to the event held at Warsash United Reformed Church, on Warsash Road.

The initiative, run by Home Instead Senior Care, will run every other Wednesday from 2pm to 4pm, and started this week.

Organiser Luisa Castle said: ‘I’m really pleased that people came along and had fun.

‘It is nice for carers to bring their loved ones along to an event where everybody is in the same boat and somewhere they can get help and advice.’

Dementia nurse Jeni Bell was there to answer questions.
