"Memory Cafés are places where anyone with any form of dementia, or memory loss, can go to socialize, learn and have fun.

At a memory café, people can relax and just be themselves, knowing that no one judges them and all who are there are going through similar challenges.

A Memory Café has no real agenda or stated purpose except to enjoy each other's company. Sometimes the group may decide that it wants to have speakers or an educational component, or do special activities like go to museums or music recitals.

Some memory café's are built around a concept like the arts, or to do a charitable act. Each memory café around the country is different; all are grass roots efforts to assist the person with dementia and their care partner to have a good day."
