Sara Nurse organised the event and it was attended by Emma Harrison, patient experience and public involvement lead at the QEH.

Emma said: "I was really pleased to be invited to the opening of the King’s Lynn Dementia Café organised by West Norfolk Carers.

"The group are so welcoming to people with dementia and their carers and I was treated to a lovely afternoon tea and a chat.

"I was also able to update everyone about how we are progressing with the hospital’s dementia friendly garden, this group has been instrumental in choosing what they would like to see in such a garden and also what we should avoid.

"The café is a great opportunity for carers and people with dementia to get together and have a great social time."
