What is a Memory Café?
A Memory Café is a social gathering for individuals who have begun to have memory issues such as mild cognitive impairment (MCI), mild to moderate dementia, early stage Alzheimer's disease, or similar impairments. Spouses, family members and/or caregivers participate with them. Memory Café Fox Valley has been meeting monthly since early 2016 in a safe and comfortable environment in which those who participate can socialize and engage in a variety of enjoyable activities.
Memory Café Fox Valley seeks to connect memory-challenged individuals and their care partners with others who are having similar experiences. It strives to create a positive atmosphere that promotes social contact, stimulates memory, and quiets anxiety.
Memory Café Fox Valley usually meets at the Batavia Public Library from 10:00 - 11:30 a.m. on the fourth Wednesday of each month (except for occasional outdoor adventures during spring and summer, and the December Holiday Party). The address is 10 S. Batavia Avenue (Route 31 at Wilson Street) in Batavia. To confirm the time and place, please call Barbara at 630-643-2263 or John at 630-879-0684.
