Step into the heartwarming embrace of our Dementia Cafe, a place where understanding, connection, and friendship blossom. Our mission is simple: to offer a warm and inviting sanctuary for individuals living with dementia and their loved ones.


The Link Visiting Scheme is a charity based in Wokingham which connects those struggling with loneliness and social isolation and offers everyone a range of social opportunities to enjoy and look forward to. Quality time and a friendly face can make all the difference. 


The Earley Day Centre is a drop-in day centre which runs a number of sessions from Canasta and Whist to puzzles and a friendly chat. 


The day centre is a purpose-built and welcoming building just five minutes' walk from the centre of Twyford. The main room is a large and comfortable lounge where most of the activities take place. A loop system has been installed for those who are hard of hearing.


Formed in 2012, the charity supports those diagnosed with young onset dementia by providing age-appropriate workshops during the week. These workshops include choir, art, gardening, katakanuing, reminiscence, badminton, snooker and lots more.  This provides respite for the carers and families who are also supported with regular Connecting Carers groups.  The service is currently available across Berkshire and Surrey Heath.

The day centre is open on weekdays and has a full-time manager, caring and catering staff. We aim to give our members a break from their own homes, and day respite for their carers, whether immediate family, relations or professionals, who can be confident that their dependants are being well looked after in a caring and professional environment.


The Alzheimer's Café (Wokingham Methodist Church) opened in May 2015. 

It is aimed at providing a place for those living with this condition and their carers to get together for tea, chat, friendship, singing, music, stories, gentle sports and sharing.  They have a mixture of young and old attending the café as they are now supporting Young People with Dementia also.
