Memory Café offers socializing, support

Jewish Family & Children’s Service hosts a series of monthly Memory Cafés for those with memory loss and their care partners. The events will be held at Beth El Congregation, 1118 W. Glendale Ave., 10-11:30 a.m. on the first Thursday of each month, beginning Nov. 2. The cafe is limited to 15 pairs of care partners.

The challenges of living with memory loss can strain or even sever social connection at a time when it is needed most. Memory Cafés are one way individuals with memory loss and their care companions can come together to make new friendships and support one another.

The Memory Café is a meeting place for those with changes in their thinking or memory, mild cognitive impairment or dementia due to Alzheimer’s disease or a related disorder, along with their care partners. Each month will have a new theme and will include meaningful and fun activities to engage the participants and stimulate their minds and bodies. A diagnosis of dementia is not required to attend.

There is no charge to attend, but registration is requested. To register, e-mail Kathy.rood@jfcsaz.org or call 602-452-4627.
