A Memory Cafe is a safe and comfortable space where caregivers and their loved ones can socialise, listen to music, play games, and enjoy other appropriate activities.
The space provides mutual support allowing people to exchange information and gain access to additional resources.
Guests can simply enjoy the company of others with things in common.
