Alzheimer’s Cafe, 5/03/13
Friday, May 3, 9:30 – 11:30 am.
Very different from a traditional support group, the Alzheimer’s Café is not a support group at all. It is an opportunity for people and families living with Alzheimer’s to get out and socialize in a safe and supportive space that is warm and friendly, like a café or coffee house. They are welcomed into a distinctly non-institutional, accepting, social setting to chat, relax, and enjoy refreshments. Here they find empathetic support from those who share similar experiences. Such a sanctuary gives them permission to be themselves and can help those with dementia stave off further isolation and mental decline.
The Café is warm and inviting, light refreshments are served. Reservations are not necessary and there is no cost to attend. Café attendees can drift in at their leisure, after about 30 minutes there will be a welcome and announcement of the optional educational program (held in another room). Attendees can stay in the Café and socialize or attend the education program.
