Dementia Action Marlow Pop-Up in Liston Court

| |

Dementia Action Marlow has announced a pop-up shop in Liston Court Marlow this week. Open on 16th and 17th May, the event encourages residents to take advantage of the community group to support those living with the condition, offering expert advice and a friendly chat with the team.

The pop-up will be open from 10am-4pm, offering a space outside to have a relaxed chat and make those seeking support feel at ease – with tea, coffee, cakes and biscuits available to those who pop in. Volunteers will be on hand to meet visitors and provide some friendly advice to those who may be facing a challenging time with a loved one living with dementia.

Dementia Action Marlow was founded over four years ago and started as a small community social group however, it now has over 100 members across Marlow, Beaconsfield and the wider Buckinghamshire area.

The group provides support for those living with dementia, their carers and facilitates social interaction by hosting weekly café groups, enabling members to form friendships with those in a similar situation to themselves.

Katherine Croom, managing director of Sorbon Estates said: “We are delighted to be supporting an amazing local community group like Dementia Action Marlow. The work they do to support those impacted is incredibly important, and we hope that this pop-up will encourage those who are in need of help to reach out. The dedicated team of volunteers are on hand to offer well-informed advice and a warm cup of tea.”

Jenny Miles Founder and Trustee of Dementia Action Marlow said: “We are looking forward to welcoming those in need to our pop-up on Marlow High Street. We want to ensure that no one feels isolated within the local community and can find a safe space to connect with those they can relate to. The pop-up is open to carers to come alone or with those they are caring for; we started this group as we thought there was not enough support in place, and we wanted to ensure that no one feels alone.”
