If you have a loved one with Alzheimer’s disease or  similar memory-related illness, we invite you to join  us at the Twining Village Memory Café.

 Having grown out of a concept from the Netherlands,  our Memory Café is a monthly get-together of people  with memory loss and their friends and family members  in a supportive, non-judgmental, compassionate  and engaging environment.

 

The café provides a place of warmth and friendship to  socialize in a relaxed and less-stressful atmosphere.  Our goal is simply to bring together people in similar  situations because positive social interaction is as  important to brain health as diet and exercise. The  bonds forged in memory cafés often are long-lasting,  offering an additional resource for participants.

 

Our program is not a support, respite or educational group and does require caregivers to be present. Its range of  benefits includes positive change from your daily routine.

 

In fact, the Twining Village Memory Café is a brief time  to leave worries at home and simply enjoy yourself.  Activities include refreshments, crafts, games, sing-alongs, trivia programs and much more!

 

Free to everyone! For more information, contact the Rev. Erin Maurer,  Twining Village chaplain, or Beverly Gowton, director  of community life, at (215) 396-7150.
