Welcome To The
The Best Idea yet in Dementia Care
An Alzheimer’s, dementia or memory café is a very “simple” idea: A monthly gathering of individuals with memory loss along with their caregivers, and/or friends and family in a safe, supportive, and engaging environment. The cafe gives everyone a welcome break from the disease.
When there’s Alzheimer’s or another dementia in the family, the disorder is a constant presence. Being out in public grows increasingly more stressful and yet it’s important for people to feel part of their communities as long as possible. The café provides a respite in a judgment-free space with others who understand and share feelings.
Dr Jytte Fogh Lokvig introduced the Alzheimer’s (and memory) Cafe concept in the United States in 2008 with her cafe in Santa Fe, NM. Dr Lokvig is a nationally recognized Alzheimer’s specialist with expertise in communication, effective approaches, and creative caregiving with more than a quarter century of experience working with people with dementia, including Alzheimer’s disease.
