Cafes come by a number of names, Memory Cafes, Alzheimer's Cafes, Dementia Cafes.
The concept is to provide a social occasion, a meetup, for anyone with dementia / Alzheimer's, their care givers and family.
They are informal and generally free. Activities vary. Support and funding depends on the host-provider and contributions. This blog is a member of MainZone Knowledge Network.

Are you caring for someone with Alzheimer's or other dementia? Create A Better Day Café encourages socialization with other caregivers and loved ones where you can just be yourself. This is a wonderful opportunity to get out with your loved one and have an enjoyable afternoon. It's a time to step out of the daily routine, leave the disease at the door, and enjoy a positive experience in a supportive environment. The afternoon will consist of conversation, music, arts, games, refreshments, and most importantly, laughter. There is no cost. It is open to anyone at any stage of the disease process accompanied by friends, family, and loved ones.
Create A Better Day Café will be held the 4th Sunday of each month from 1:00pm to 3:00pm
at Pleasantries Adult Day Services 195 Reservoir Street
