My mother was diagnosed with vascular dementia in 2010. This is a blog about coming to terms with her absent mind.

Dementia Cafe Cook Book

This is a shameless appeal.

The Dementia Cafe is run by volunteers for sufferers of dementia and their carers. We meet once a month for coffee (and sometimes biscuits!) and either a fun activity like music and movement or for a talk or sometimes both. It provides the opportunity for sufferers to gain some much needed stimulation and contact with other people and gives the carers a safe place to talk to others who completely understand the issues we deal with and to share advice, experience etc. The wonderful Rachel has gathered a group of people together and produced a cook book to raise some funds for our little cafe. The recipes were road tested one day when folks descended on the community centre armed with whisks and spatulas, then everyone sat down and ate the results!

The book contains 12 recipes. Each recipe is in there because it is or was connected in some way to the world of dementia, either a sufferer or a carer. As I type this I've just realised that I don't know how much we are selling it for! I think the suggested donation is around £2.50 but will check that and correct as necessary.

If you would like to buy a cook book, or make a donation please email me at

Thank you
