What is a Memory Café?
People with forgetfulness and other changes in their thinking and caretakers are invited to meet for this special program. “The goal is just to have fun together,” says Beth Soltzberg, founder of the Massachusetts Memory Café movement.

The memory Café is a welcoming community
setting to talk, enjoy light refreshments, and socialize with other people in similar circumstances
