Memory Cafés

What is a Memory Café?

A Memory Café is a safe space and social gathering place for individuals and families who live with memory loss, mild cognitive impairment, early Alzheimer’s, or other dementias.

ADAW Memory Cafés

ADAW Memory Cafés meet once a month in a relaxed environment. Participants visit, share common interests, and enjoy refreshments. Each memory cafe is unique and offers a program or activity that’s stimulating and fun.
