Silverline Memories is a Registered Charity (number 1163582) based in Newcastle upon Tyne founded in December 2013. All of our volunteers have personal or professional experience of caring for someone with Dementia, and we therefore recognise that it is not just the person with the diagnosis who is “living with Dementia”, but anyone who knows and loves him/her.
Silverline Memories provides “places to go and things to do” for people living with dementia in Newcastle & Gateshead. We recognise that Dementia affected the whole family, and beyond, so welcome everyone to our events and activities. We facilitate two Dementia Cafes, a weekly Support Group for Dementia Carers, two Tea Dances a month and we arrange many day trips and visits to places of local interest.
In addition we are proud of our Community Memory Garden in Springwell, Gateshead, where we offer Social and Therapeutic Horticulture Workshops. Full details can be found at www.springwellcommunitymemorygarden.com
