Have you heard of memory cafés? They are popping up all over the place and are giving caregivers and their loved ones a place to go to connect with others and enjoy some time … together. I have recently heard great feedback from caregivers who have attended a memory café near them and thought I should share.
Caregiving MetroWest has a recent blog about some changes to a few memory cafés in this area (find it here) with a great quote from Pleasantries owner and director Tammy Pozerycki, as she describes her Café as “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 entertainment, conversation, music, arts, games, refreshments, and most importantly, laughter.”
