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 the third Thursday of every month. All are welcome.
The Memory Café idea stemmed from the Congregation’s HOME (Helping Ourselves Meaningfully Engage) team and has broadened its focus in recent months to include not just 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 six cities in Indiana to offer the programming, including Schererville, Bloomington, Evansville, Fishers and New Albany. It is also the only city in the Wabash Valley to offer the programming.
In addition to the start date of Sept. 19, dates for the Memory Café events include Oct. 17, Nov. 21, and Dec. 19, all in 2019; and Jan. 16, Feb. 20, March 19, April 16, May 21, June 18, July 16 and Aug. 20, in 2020.
