Memory Café

Memory Cafés are a chance for those with early memory loss and their caregivers to socialize, laugh, share stories, and build new connections. A Memory Café has no real agenda or stated purpose except to enjoy each other's company. Cafés provide a time where you do not need to focus on the diagnosis, while having a great time connecting with each other as a family or creating new friendships.
