Tuesday, October 22 from 1:30 to 3 p.m. Featuring social times, music and movement with music therapist and Senior Center Director Loryn Ray A Memory Café is a welcoming place for people with memory changes and for their family and friends. Each Memory Café is different. Some cafés invite guest artists, some offer education about memory changes and some are just for meeting others and relaxing. All memory cafés have two goals: to help guests feel comfortable and to know they are not alone. Cafés are a place to talk with others who understand what they are going through, a place for couples and families to connect, to leave behind limitations for a while and instead focus on strengths, to enjoy each other’s company and to explore something new. Resources and information on future cafés will also be available. This program offered free of charge. Please sign up
