About AgeGuide Memory Cafes
Memory Cafés are social gatherings for those living in the community who are usually in the early or middle stages of their disease process, often accompanied by a family member or care partner. These cafés serve as places to have fun, find support, and share experiences. People living with dementia often experience great social isolation and Memory Cafés have proven to help break that isolation. Individual Memory Cafes focus on different aspects for a unique experience. You may find some are activities-based, while others focus on education. You might have one enjoying the connections of demographic-appropriate music and dancing. Others might focus on crafts and painting. Some simply guide the participants in exercises that foster reminiscing. Caregivers & loved ones living with mild cognitive impairment are invited to attend this social event together. We chat about a discussion topic & it feels like an old-time neighborhood gathering. There truly is something for everyone!
