A MEMORY CAFÉ is held in a safe and comfortable space where caregivers and their loved ones can socialize and enjoy activities together. They allow those living with any form of dementia or cognitive decline an opportunity to enjoy the company of others. Memory Cafés provide mutual support, exchange of information and a place for caregivers to enjoy activities with their loved one as a break from the normal routine. Enjoy connections made through music, dancing, crafts, guided reminiscing, painting, exercise…you name it! Each Memory Café is different but they all offer a variety of engaging activities for participants.
