Memory Cafés are for those experiencing early stage dementia, mild memory loss or cognitive impairment, and for family and friends of those affected. It’s a great opportunity for lively discussions, information gathering, refreshments, camaraderie, and lots of creative fun thrown in! We have a gerontology professional on hand to answer questions and an enormous wealth of experience among participants to be shared. We’d be delighted if you would join us! Call Betty at 225-1711, Fox Valley Memory Project Program Coordinator, or the Neenah Public Library at 886-6315 for more information.
Memory Cafés will be held the third Monday of every month from 1:30-3:30. Note: If assistance is needed to participate, please bring with you someone to help.
