Welcome to the ALZHEIMER’S Café

and Memory Café

Dr. Jytte Lokvig started the first Alzheimer’s Café in the northern hemisphere in 2008 in Santa Fe, NM. Since then the concept has spread steadily to communities all over the United States and Canada.


The National Alzheimer’s Café Alliance has been established to:

  1. Support a shared vision of the Alzheimer’s and Memory Cafe movement


  1. Provide a platform to share resources and tools with Alliance members


  1. Share ideas on improving quality-of-life through use of artistic tools

  2. Facilitate seminars, trainings and presentations accessible to a wide audience


If you already have a cafe, we invite you to join.


If you’re interested in starting their own cafe, contact us; we’ll gladly walk you through the process (It will be the simplest and yet the most effective thing you’ve ever done.)
