Memory Cafés
What is a Memory Café?
Memory Cafés engage families dealing with memory loss in a relaxed environment, promoting social interaction and support. As we face these lifestyle changes, let's remember that we each have an important story to tell. We're in it together.
Look for the Memory Café logo to find one coming near you soon!

As part of our continuing Education efforts, we are looking for volunteers to become Support Group Facilitators to lead the expansion of awareness in all our communities.  Support Group Facilitator Training sessions are being scheduled and dates, times and locations can be viewed here.   Please email Nicolette Vasco or call her at 800.272.3900 to Register or with questions.
