Spring Hill Memory Cafe
February 8, 2018 @ 1:00 pm - 3:00 pm
Meridien Research opens Memory Café at the Spring Hill Senior Enrichment Center!
A Memory Cafe is a safe and comfortable space where caregivers and their loved ones can socialize, listen to music, play games, and enjoy other appropriate activities. They provide mutual support and exchange information.
Activities are varied, but tend to focus on topics 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. Emphasis is often placed on activities where humor can be a central part of the enjoyment.
Mostly, a Memory Cafe is meant to make connections with those who are being challenged in a similar manner as you and your loved one.
You can both have fun! Most cafes provide stimulating activities for carers and people with dementia which can help prevent boredom and aid relaxation. For example, live music, sing-alongs, quizzes, painting, memory box work, massage and reflexology.
You can talk about personal issues that you might be worried about, such as changes in your relationship with people who understand.
