Memory Café

Memory Café is a volunteer-run social gathering and respite service for those with dementia, their caregivers, families, friends, and the community. This is not a drop-off program or a support group, but rather a time to gather, relax, enjoy one another, and to reduce the isolation and loneliness that accompanies a diagnosis of dementia for both the person who gets the diagnosis and the caregiver. Each session will be hosted by members of our congregation who have received specialized training. This program is open to people in our congregation and the community. Reservations are not required for these gatherings. Contact Leah Brown at 252-4781 for more information.

  • July 17 - 1:00-3:00 p.m. - Dining Room
