What’s a Memory Cafe?

The NMC is a welcoming place for individuals, families, and friends of those living with memory changes. The cafe gives people and their companions a chance to share in a positive experience through laughter, companionship, and socialization in a relaxed and safe environment. Come join us for conversation, refreshments, entertainment, and activities in a carefree environment.

The cafe meets monthly on the third Thursday of the month from 1:30-3:00 at the senior center, 275 Prospect Street, Norwood. Email Je7cot@msn.com or call 781-762-1611 to register for these free events:*
