A Memory Café is a welcoming place where people living with early to moderate dementia, together with their care partners (and/or family and friends), can gather together to laugh, learn and remain socially connected with others walking the same journey.

Memory Cafés are designed to bring people together in the time-honored tradition of enjoying a beverage and conversation. They afford opportunities for engagement, support and networking in addition to offering a welcome respite from the day-to-day challenges of dementia.

Our Memory Café is open on the third Thursday of every month from 2-4 p.m. (Eastern time). All are welcome! Parking is available on the east side of Providence Hall, near the first-floor lift.

The Memory Café idea stemmed from the Congregation’s HOME (Helping Ourselves Meaningfully Engage) team and has broadened its focus to include not just the Sisters of Providence and those residing at Providence Health Care, but also the general public.

By hosting the Memory Cafés, Saint Mary-of-the-Woods will become one of eight cities in Indiana to offer the programming, including Bloomington, Evansville, Fishers, New Albany, Noblesville, Richmond and Schererville. It is also the only city in the Wabash Valley to offer the programming.

In addition to the start date of Sept. 17, dates for the Memory Café events include Oct. 15, Nov. 19, and Dec. 17, all in 2020; and Jan. 21, Feb. 18, March 18, April 15, May 20, June 17, July 15 and Aug. 19, in 2021.
