Our gatherings have blossomed since 2013 - every month gather in the community to align understanding and compassion in dementia-friendly spaces.

Too often families going through Alzheimer’s or other types of dementia are isolated. We aim to change that. Our “neighborhood memory cafes” bring care-partners and loved ones together to immerse in the arts, take a field trip, experience new tools, let go of stress, and refuel with hope -- all at no cost to participants.

Volunteers help us with the details and we cover cost of outings, visiting artists, and refreshments. Visit us on Facebook to see our joyful participants and the places we visit on The Emerald Coast. Call Hope Matters at (850) 582-3496 for more info and RSVP to attend.

Our Monthly Schedule:
- Carington Manor on the 2nd Monday and Safe & Secure on the 2nd Wednesday each month in Crestview (10:30 am in both facilities).
- Fort Walton Beach on the 2nd Friday of each month, out and about in the community.
