Memory Café Fox Valley
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, 10 S. Batavia Avenue (Route 31 at Wilson Street) in Batavia from 10:00 - 11:30 a.m. on the fourth Wednesday of each month. Some summer meetings may be at other outdoor venues, and the November meeting and December Holiday Party are scheduled earlier in the month to avoid the holidays. To confirm the time and place, please call Barbara at 630-643-2263. For information on each month's meeting, click on the "This Month" menu option at www.memorycafefoxvalley.com.
