A playful gathering for those with memory challenges & their partners

Memory Cafes in the Boston area

CC King

Boston, MA

September 19 at 2pm & October 20 at 10am

Come for simple pleasure: for people living with dementia and their partners the Memory Cafe is a place for fun, laughter, song and movement. Anybody can do it! We will recharge and focus on life and connection in community. Memory Cafes are popping up around the country. In May come for InterPlay in Medford Mass. All are invited to a welcoming place for people living with memory changes due to Alzheimer’s, vascular disease, Parkinson’s, frontotemporal degeneration, or other related conditions. InterPlay provides a means of self-expression, connection with others, without fancy tools and rules. It addresses some of the most basic needs seniors have for non-clinical, non-task-oriented touch, for validation, for being encouraged to call forth memories, skills, talents and to try something different in an accepting environment. InterPlay groups foster community and caring among participants. It is an excellent tool for integrating seniors living at different levels of functionality. It allows task-oriented care partners and family members to see their clients/residents/loved ones as whole people again, even if different.

Cost: Free!
