About the Event
Memory Cafe is a fancy name for a support group we call, Care Connections. At Care Connections, we leave the diagnosis at the door, and help foster relationships between caregivers and the recipient. It's a place to enjoy one another's company while forming bonds and connections with others experiencing similar changes and challenges of life.
Care Connections is open to PAST & PRESENT caregivers and those they take care of. Participants may be individuals with a traumatic brain injury, or with memory challenges found in aging and forms of dementia, but those who do not fall under those circumstances are also encouraged to participate. The group is facilitated by NSAP staff and volunteers.
Meetups offer support surrounding memory challenges, but focus more on activities that provide fun, support, and promote peace and a sense of wellbeing through music, crafts, games, visits, exercise and other techniques.
Meetups at NSAP are part of "Coffee Time for Caregivers," every 3rd Thursday from 10:30 – 11:30 am. Please call 218-226-3635 for more information.
