What happens at a MASE?

Fundamentally the MASE aims to provide social support and information for people with dementia, their carers, family and friends.

Once a month, in Haughton, Rugeley, Great Wyrley and Cannock a MASE Group is held. The locations have reasonable access by public transport and are in safe locations close to each town. The premises have wheel chair access, accessible toilets, car parking and catering facilities. Every effort is made to make the MASE user-friendly by using suitable visual and audio equipment.
