Now Open Every Thursday!

Dementia Friendly Keighley is delighted to announce its new ‘ Drop in” area within its information and advice centre located in The Airedale Shopping Centre in Keighley.

The “Drop in” provides a comfortable, welcoming and safe haven where anybody, whether it be a carer or family member, who cares for a loved one who is living with  dementia can leave them for a couple of hours knowing that they will be safe and cared for.

Dementia Friendly Keighley recognises the love, commitment and demands that carers face on a daily basis and its our aim to try to help and support them. The “Drop in” will allow some free time to attend appointments, shop, meet up with friends for a coffee or simply have a walk in the park. It is all about creating a space for some personal time safe in the knowledge that their loved one is with people who understand, have experience of the condition and who want to support and make a difference.

We have two sessions running every Thursday from 10.00am – 12:30pm and 13:30pm – 16:00pm

Please call us now on 07452 773788 to book an appointment

The services provided by Dementia Friendly Keighley have benefitted our family massively as it allows mum the space we need to be able to spend quality time together without mum worrying about grandma and her care. The Drop In staff and volunteers do a great job of settling their visitors and making them feel comfortable which is hard to find when people with memory problems are so easily confused and worried. My grandma has made friends here and found a safe space she enjoys away from the family
