Therapeutic Approaches to
Memory Loss & Dementia

Memory Matters is a Community Interest Company (CIC). We trade for public benefit rather than private gain and all of our projects and services are designed, developed and built on the needs of those affected by dementia. We are a team of dedicated individuals who share an ethos of compassion, kindness, fun and curiosity. The team is led by co-founders Kate and Laura, qualified nurses and social entrepreneurs.

We are champions of Cognitive Stimulation Therapy (CST); a therapy proven to slow the progression of dementia and increase quality of life. We weave this into our services with the guidance of the very people we serve. We work closely with likeminded individuals and organisations in the South West to achieve our goal of ensuring that every person diagnosed with dementia, as well as those close to them, has access to the support they need to continue to lead a happy and fulfilled life.

“I cannot express how wonderful I found the whole experience I felt understood, reassured, comforted and inspired. I came away with a wealth of information. We truly bless the day we found Memory Matters.”
Mr. Emmett, Saltash
