Memory Café'
The fourth Wednesday of every month we will be hosting a Memory Café in the fireplace room from 10-11am.  Originally started in England, this informal setting provides the caregiver a forum for discussion, reducing the isolation often felt by people with dementia, their caregivers and families.  Discussions can range from practical tips for coping with dementia, avoiding caregiver burnout or information about community resources. Coffee and conversation specifically for people with memory loss and their caregivers.
