THE Melbourne Cafe in Saltcoats recently completed their participation in Dementia Awareness Week.

Elaine Meney from the Melbourne said: “During the week we had many conversations in the cafe about Dementia which was encouraging that people were open to talk of their experiences and journeys supporting dementia in their families.

“We were able to pass on the leaflet information of what’s available in the local area to support all affected by this disease. We were delighted to participate and support this effort.

“We finished our reach out to the community by placing ‘support rocks’ with messages on them.

“They can be found on top of the sea wall @ Melbourne Park area.”
