At a Pabulum Dementia Café you can meet others, enjoy activities and gain support. Reminiscence items are used to aid interaction, conversation and laughter.

Carers may remain with those they care for throughout the session, or break away into another room to discuss issues relating to their caring role and provide mutual support.

As well as being a great place to socialise, the Cafés are also a source of information and advice. During your visit to one of our Dementia Cafés you can access Age UK Norfolk's information and advice services and we can put you in touch with other relevant support organisations.

In response to specific issues the Pabulum coordinator will arrange for specialists to visit the Cafés to talk about relevant services, support or facilities.
