Memory Cafés expand to three events/locations in July

| Senior Solutions News

 Join us in Brattleboro, White River Junction, and Springfield!

After an incredibly successful inaugural Café launch last month in Brattleboro, three such events are now scheduled for July and will continue on a regular basis in future months. Memory Cafés are planned for July 13 in Brattleboro, July 20 in White River Junction, and July 27 in Springfield. There is no charge for any of these cafés.

A Memory Café is a wonderfully welcoming place for caregivers and their loved ones who are challenged with forms of dementia or other cognitive disorders. It is a safe and comfortable space where caregivers and their loved ones can socialize, listen to music, play games, and enjoy other appropriate activities, while providing caregivers with the opportunity to network and connect with each other.
