Program Description

Event Details

Memory Cafés provide a welcoming social gathering for people living with dementia and their care partners, focusing on person-centered care for those living with dementia. We'll begin with relaxed socializing, move on to a planned activity revolving around a specific theme, and end with more social time. Memory Cafés create a sense of community without the pressure to share in a support group environment.

Registration is not required but care partners must be in attendance as well.
