Memory Café: Drum Circle

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!

Memory Cafe: Timeslips

Creative storytelling time!  Through the use of “Timeslips” we will collectively use imagination and improvisation to create original fun stories to share.  Carrie Essleman, Valley VNA's Therapeutic Recreation Specialist, will lead us in this fun program.
