The Memory Tree CIC is a not-for-profit organization founded in 2012 by Dr Elizabeth Anderson to bring the knowledge she built up about dementia during her academic career direct to the community.

Some of the feedback from our wonderful club members.
"I greatly value that we are able to have some time apart. I feel that we both gain more confidence at the sessions. It enables me to speak about problems and I enjoy the discussions."
Memory Tree Member
“My husband enjoys coming here as well, as he likes to talk to the other men with memory difficulties.”
Memory Tree Member
“The sessions are valued as they help my husband to express himself when I am not there. I particularly value the support of the staff and the other carers, and the information we receive.”
Memory Tree Member
"In the carers group we have time together to laugh or to cry with others who really understand what it is like."
Memory Tree Member
"If the Memory Club was closed this would leave a gap in our support."
Memory Tree Member
"I particularly value the pleasure of being with people who know and understand the problems."
