Mingle at Our Memory Cafe!
In 1997, Dutch psychiatrist Bere Miesen introduced the idea of a place where those with Alzheimer’s and related dementias and their caregivers can mingle in a comfortable and fun environment – a Memory Cafe. This concept spread throughout Europe and successfully made its way to the U.S. in 2008.
What is a Memory Café?
A Memory Café is a casual gathering designed exclusively for people with dementia and their caregivers. The Memory Café is held in a private room and is a place where individuals with memory loss and their caregivers can get together in a supportive and engaging environment. The Memory Café encourages laughter, support and even the sharing of concerns—all without the feeling of being embarrassed or misunderstood.
Presbyterian SeniorCare Network hosts free monthly Memory Cafes in three locations:
It is with an abundance of caution for your safety, the safety of your family members and our team members that we’ve made the decision to cancel all Memory Cafés for the time being.
Please check back here and on our Facebook page for updates on when the Memory Cafés will resume. You can find our Facebook here: https://www.facebook.com/PresbyterianSeniorCare/
All of the Memory Cafes are open to the public. No RSVP required – just pop on in! And we even provide snacks!
