17th - 23rd May 2021 Dementia Action Week


Age Exchange café reopens in May

We are delighted to announce that we will be opening the Age Exchange café for outside dining and take away from Tuesday 4th May, we hope the weather will be good to us and you can come and enjoy lunch or afternoon tea with us in the wonderful garden.

Due to the size of the building at Age Exchange we are taking a staged approach to reopening to give us time to ensure that we keep everyone safe. We plan to open the library a month later on Tuesday 1st June, we will release more details about the plans for library re-opening later.

All of the team at Age Exchange are really excited about re-opening, we have missed everyone very much and we can’t wait to see you all again.

Age Exchange is planning to reopen Caring Together services on the 4th of May, with previous precautions in place – including the wearing of masks, social distancing and fewer people at each group.

Age Exchange Gallery

We are delighted to have launched the new Age Exchange Gallery. Our virtual gallery has been created so we can show you the wonderful art works the many participants of our services have created since March 2020 when the pandemic hit. The art works in our gallery have been created by service users living with dementia and their carers. We have been inspired by the beautiful and moving art works they have created during such a challenging time for each of them. We have called our first exhibition “Lockdown."
