Hamari Yaadain – Touchstone’s monthly dementia cafe for people from the South Asian community – was recently featured on the Alzheimer’s Society website and in their Living With Dementia magazine.
The articles author quotes Ripaljeet Kaur (Touchstone’s lead worker on dementia): “Groups like this one are really important for people from black, Asian and minority ethnic backgrounds. It’s run in their mother tongue, so people feel comfortable. It’s the only group that most of them go to, because of the language and the culture. It’s about bringing people together and making them feel more comfortable talking about the issues they are facing.”
