This Amazing Cafe Makes the Alzheimer’s Experience the Norm!

For patients and caregivers dealing with Alzheimer’s, the Memory Cafe is a place to socialize, enjoy refreshments, and get to know other families dealing with the same situation.

Memory Cafe engages patients with Alzheimer’s in activities such as arts and crafts, singing, dancing, reminiscing, and even massage. It’s a place of empowerment that enables people with memory loss to maintain their own sense of identity and well-being. Caregivers are also able to find support, making them not feel isolated, or as if they are the only ones dealing with a loved one with Alzheimer’s.
