Our Memory Café is targeted for caregivers and those with Alzheimer’s disease and other dementias. The purpose is to provide an environment where caregivers and loved ones can enjoy socializing with others that relate to their struggles. This program will exist to support, encourage and provide friendships and resources to caregivers. Our Goal is to reduce the isolation that accompanies being a caregiver.
The Memory Café will be a one-of-a-kind experience, giving caregivers the opportunity to socialize and learn in the same setting. It is our hope that as each month passes, our caregivers become more comfortable in our café setting, where they can relax with their loved one, in addition to coming together with other caregivers to learn from each other.
The Memory café will start off with a brunch style meal, special activities for caregivers and their loved ones to participate together. A “breakout session” for the caregiver to discuss the different topics related to caregiving for Alzheimer’s and dementias will conclude this event.
