MIDDLESBROUGH libraries and community hubs are working to help people living with dementia and their carers through their popular dementia cafes.

This year sees the launch of new cafes at Hemlington and Easterside Community Hubs.

The monthly cafes give people living with dementia and their carers a chance to meet and socialise with others, receive information and take part in a wide range of activities ranging from craft activities to music and reminiscence over tea and cake.
