DAI's celebrates 9 years at a virtual Café Le Brain

At the beginning of each year, we host a virtual cafe to celebrate our birthday, and we invite you to join us. This is your opportunity to have some fun, meet the new board, new staff, and welcome back the DAI Café Le Brain.

Historically, DAI has hosted a monthly virtual Café Le Brain for its members and their families and supporters, including the birthday celebration event, which we had to put it on hold mid 2022 due to a lack of volunteers to set up and host them.

From humble beginnings and huge dreams of providing support and global advocacy of, by and for people with dementia, to campaigning for human rights and for dementia to be managed as a disability, alongside providing weekly peer to peer support, we continue to achieve a lot!

DAI's vision is a world where all people are valued and equally included, including people with dementia and our care partners, and we are looking forward to a new year with you.

Hosted by our Chair, Alister Robertson, Alumni board member Christine Thelker and co-founder and board member Kate Swaffer

Entertainment by Graeme Atkinson, DAI member and resident Recreation Officer has produced a song especially for this event.

Everyone is welcome.
