KYC’s Mem­o­ry Café Grand Opening

KYC is excit­ed to announce the grand open­ing of a Mem­o­ry Café on Jan­u­ary 18th, thanks to a gen­er­ous grant from AgeOp­tions. The Mem­o­ry Café will hold engag­ing activ­i­ties like inter­ac­tive games, live enter­tain­ment, and shared meals to encour­age com­mu­ni­ty and sup­port healthy rela­tion­ships among peo­ple liv­ing with demen­tia and their caregivers. 

Mem­o­ry Cafes Encour­age Com­mu­ni­ty Among Peo­ple Liv­ing with Mem­o­ry Impair­ment and Caregivers

KYC’s Mem­o­ry Café is open to any­one liv­ing with mem­o­ry impair­ments and their care­givers, regard­less of whether either per­son is a cur­rent KYC client. The Mem­o­ry Café will meet once per month for an hour or two. There is no cost to attend the Café, although reg­is­tra­tion is required. Both the per­son with mem­o­ry impair­ment and their care­giv­er must attend together. 

A light meal will be pro­vid­ed, and a trained Café Leader will lead a vari­ety of engag­ing activ­i­ties that will pro­mote healthy inter­ac­tion. Activ­i­ties may include games, infor­ma­tive pre­sen­ta­tions, and live enter­tain­ment. The kinds of activ­i­ties pro­vid­ed will be flex­i­ble and large­ly dri­ven by the inter­ests of those who attend the Café.

Peo­ple liv­ing with mem­o­ry impair­ment and their care­givers can often become social­ly iso­lat­ed due to the social stig­ma and the chal­lenges asso­ci­at­ed with demen­tia. The pur­pose of a Mem­o­ry Café is to encour­age com­mu­ni­ty among peo­ple liv­ing with demen­tia and their care­givers and to help build pos­i­tive rela­tion­ships through engag­ing activ­i­ties. Our Café Lead­ers will cre­ate a wel­com­ing envi­ron­ment in which care­givers and peo­ple with mem­o­ry impair­ments can con­nect and share resources or sug­ges­tions with one another.
