Palm Cafe Balerno

PALM is a social group café for people with dementia and their carers serving the communities of Balerno, Juniper Green and Currie.

The PALM café aims to:

    • Provide a space for people with dementia and their carers to meet others for support and social contact.
    • Use activities such as music, movement, reminiscence and craft to enhance the wellbeing of the person with dementia.
  • Provide an opportunity for informal support and information for carers.

The PALM café is held in the St Joseph’s Centre, Balerno on the last Tuesday of the month from 2.30pm to 4pm. See our location map
