(closed for summer break in August only)
Caring for a person with Alzheimer’s disease or demential of any kind can take its toll physically, emotionally and financially. Opportunities for all involved to enjoy the company of others in a relaxed and friendly atmosphere are few. A Memory Café provides just such an opportunity, and Erie now has such a place.
We are hosting a Memory Café on the first and third Thursday of each month from 1 to 3 p.m. We are located at 7180 Perry Highway in Erie, just one mile north of the I-90 & State St. interchange. Attendance is free and open to the public.
With dementia, caregivers and the afflicted have little opportunity to experience each other socially. At our Memory Café, participants can socialize, learn and share their experiences with others in similar circumstances in a stigma-free environment. More than 5 million Americans are living with dementia, and support is greatly needed in our community. The friendships and joy that resonate from these cafés bring light and life to both people with dementia and their caregivers.
