Dementia Support in Howden
Howden Rotary Memory Cafe is a relaxing meeting place for carers and people living with dementia, where they can enjoy the company of others who understand. It’s a place for chat, entertainment, games, activities and refreshments. There is no charge for this service and visitors are warmly welcomed by our team of volunteers.
The cafe is open between 2:30 and 4:30 on the second and fourth Wednesday of each month and is held on the ground floor of Howden Shire Hall, the entrance being suitable for people with mobility problems. There is a team of volunteers, most of whom have experience of caring for loved ones with dementia. Carers find it to be a welcoming environment, in which they receive plenty of empathy from others currently or formerly in a similar situation, and guests who are living with dementia are in totally accepting company.
Activities vary from month to month, and new ideas are always welcome. There have been visiting musicians, a seated exercise session, craft making, and singalongs, and there is usually a dementia
friendly quiz to provide further stimulation.

The Humber Recovery and Wellbeing College are pleased to introduce a new and improved on-line service.
Recovery and Wellbeing Colleges take an educational approach to mental health, as opposed to the more traditional medical management. The aim of their services is to facilitate a range of free, informal and welcoming courses that support people in maintaining good mental and psysical health.
The new website is free to use and anyone can sign up for access to a series of courses and virtual sessions available 24/7, with the aim to support an individual’s mental health and wellbeing. These sessions include topics such as Stress Awareness, Resilience, Sleep Hygiene, Exploring Identity and Medication Management.
The website also includes the launch of a “Let’s Chat” series which has been co-produced with people who have lived experience with mental health. The aim of this series is to break down stigma and open up conversations, to facilitate additional support for those who may need it.
Students can track their wellbeing on the platform and useful signposting links are available, which point individuals to both local and national services should they require further support.
