What is a Memory Café?

A memory café provides a gathering place for friends with Alzheimer’s disease or other dementias and their caregivers and families to relax. Join us for free monthly events featuring light refreshments, social hour, creative arts projects or group activities. Walk-ins are welcome, but RSVP is appreciated for the FREE Memory Café. These programs are supported  by a grant from the New York State Department of Health.
