Abstract

This article reviews dementia care in the context of an adapted version of an Alzheimer's Cafe focusing on eight couples newly diagnosed with dementia. It is primarily a reflective account. The adapted version of an Alzheimer Café focused on providing an informal café with more emphasis on communication, education and support for couples. It also seeks to provide a critical platform to evaluate the impact of developing such approaches like, (Alzheimer Café) in contrast to other approaches like, couple therapy, relationship and person centred approaches.
