Curbside pop-up memory cafes are now happening around the Emerald Coast. Since 2013 our Neighborhood Memory Cafes have served as a vessel of compassion to align community understanding. Too often families going through Alzheimer’s or other types of dementia are isolated. We aim to change that. Our gatherings have transformed due to Covid-19. For the protection of our volunteers, participants, and facility staff members we are observing utmost safety precautions as outlined by the CDC. All pop-up memory cafes are held outdoors, social distanced, masks & gloves supplied as needed. Thanks to a partnership with Emerald Coast Hospice and generous donors, the costs of these pop-ups, visiting musicians, and refreshments are all covered. Visit us on Facebook to see the fun experience of curbside music. Press the Donate button to help us from a distance.
