CANCELLED - Algoma Memory Cafe

Due to growing concern with the coronavirus (COVID-19), this event has been cancelled.

Experiencing memory loss can make the world a bit more confusing at times. Sometimes we need to search for the words to express ourselves. Social events that used to be fun are now challenging. It’s easier to stay home and avoid any embarrassing moments. We worry about what others are thinking about us. But it gets lonely, and we miss being out. The mission of the Memory Café is to provide a comfortable and nonjudgmental environment in which persons with dementia, their families and their caregivers can interact and enjoy the company of others experiencing similar challenges. It provides an opportunity to learn, laugh and socialize with one another, whether it is in a small or large group setting. Activities offered at the monthly gatherings include exercise, discussions, creative projects, games, music, dancing and guest speakers.
