Memory Cafe
Join us for a monthly gathering of individuals with memory loss and their caregivers, family and/or friends.  The cafe is for individuals at any stage of the disease process.  It is a safe and supportive environment for all guests to socialize and enjoy each other's company.  The goal is to make every guest as comfortable as possible.  

Meetings are every 4th Wednesday of the month, from 2:00-3:30 PM.  

RSVP not required but appreciated.
