Our Memory Café is a supportive and welcoming monthly gathering place for people experiencing memory loss, and their families or caregivers. The café is open to anyone from Auburn or surrounding towns, at any stage of the process, and is offered in collaboration with the Auburn Senior Center.
More than one in nine Americans age 65 or older has Alzheimer’s disease or another disorder that causes memory loss. Social isolation is one of the greatest risks both for individuals living with dementia and their care partners. Memory cafés started in Europe in 1997, and since then have spread across the U.S., where they offer a welcoming environment and new social connections. Massachusetts is now a national leader in improving quality of life for those living with dementia, their friends and family, through memory cafés and other innovative community programs.
Our Café provides a very much needed time for socializing, a break for caregivers, and a warm and welcoming location where everyone can feel comfortable. Memory Café activities vary each month and all are FREE. Gatherings may include: Music, Crafts, Health and Wellness Activities, Games, and more. Refreshments provided!
