Memory Cafes

A Memory Cafe is a free, informal social event for persons living with the brain changes of dementia, and their care partners. Saline’s Holy Faith Church, in association with Dementia Friendly Saline, hosts these monthly “Come As You Are” memory café events. They are held in the Social Hall, outside, or via Zoom, depending on existing Covid restrictions.

Be a Dementia Friend or a

Dementia Friendly Organization

Dementia Friends are community members who have attended a free, 45 minute Dementia Friends information session. They’ve earned recognition as Dementia Friends (and a cool pin to wear!).  

 

A Dementia Friendly Organization is any business, church, club or other organization whose employees or members have attended a free Dementia Friendly workshop. These 1 hour sessions are tailored to show how each organization can easily adapt its interactions with customers or members to make the experience less difficult for persons living with dementia and their care partners. Besides benefiting those persons, it’s also good business. Participants get Dementia Friends Lapel Pins, and window clings and website icons announcing their Dementia Friendly Status.
