  1. Hi we are 6 woman who worked in dementia day care centre run by age concern this centre closed on 30 th November and we opened up Remember Me in the Monday 3rd December. 25 clients came with us which equates to 40 as they attend between 1 to 5 days. We took the first room available so we had a place for our clients. We refurbished it ourselves and donations kettles toasters couches looking lovely our feedback was feels like you cosy and home feeling. We were struggling to paying the £555 a week our boss took no wage, and we found out the building will not be reopened. This is essential for working families and much needed respite. We want to know if you have rooms to rent with use of kitchen so we do not have to close. Even if it is information all we be gladly appreciated
    Thanking you
