MAFS “Memory Café” also known as “Comfort Me Café” program is currently in its 2nd year. Memory Café is a wonderful, welcoming place for individuals with dementia or other cognitive impairment. In this program, individuals participate in a variety of activities like memory games, crafts, music, painting and motivational speeches with family member or caregivers. Memory Café is beneficial not only to those affected but to the caregivers as well. It is not just a place to just “drop off” your loved one for a while, but also a way to enjoy activities with them as a break from the normal routine. They can simply enjoy the company of those with similar things in common. Activities are varied but tend to focus on the pictures that are apt to cause one to reminisce about times gone by. That “connection” to the past can be as comforting as it is medically beneficial. Please benefit by registering for this program by calling, 847-306-7423
