Memory Matters is a project aimed at dementia sufferers and their carers to proactively deliver an
improvement in quality of life. It has 2 key components - the Virtual Dementia Tour Bus and the Memory Matters
Dementia Cafes. The Tour Bus offers a training experience delivered by specialists, aimed at the caregiver. It is a
scientifically proven method to give a person with a healthy brain the experience of what dementia might be like
by entering the world of an affected person. This understanding helps make simple changes to improve lives of
people with dementia and promote self-care. The Dementia Cafes will host regular meetings for dementia
sufferers to engage in stimulating activities, enjoy afternoon tea and to connect with others.
