The memory cafes are now closed. Since 2013 our Neighborhood Memory Cafes had served as a vessel of compassion to align community understanding of Alzheimer’s and other types of dementia. After 7 years of gathering at local cafes, we attempted an outdoor curbside format due to Covid-19. In complying with CDC guidelines and protocols for senior citizens, we decided it is safest to close this outreach (albeit disheartening). We invite you to view all our memorable gatherings on Facebook to see the fun experiences had by all who attended. If someone wants to pick up the torch in our place (post-Covid-19) we would more than welcome that champion of hope!
