What a memory cafe is not

What it is not:

  • The Alzheimer’s Cafe is not adult daycare
  • It is not a promotion for any cause or business (we do not display pamphlets or other advertising)
  • It is not respite care,a place for caregivers to drop off someone who needs care and supervision
  • Although the Cafe is a supportive environment, it is not a support group
  • The focus is on social activity and creative experiences, rather than problem-solving and education
