'Thanks for the Memories' Cafe

Are you an individual with memory loss or their caregiver? Looking for an enjoyable way to spend time together?

Please join us for: 

  • coffee and refreshments
  • conversation with new friends of all ages, and
  • creative exploration led by a guest artist.

The event is co-hosted by the City of Boston’s Alzheimer’s Initiative and BCYF Grove Hall Community Center.

A Memory Cafe is a place where individuals with memory loss and their caregivers can get together in a safe, supportive, and engaging environment. It is a time and place where people can interact, laugh, find support, share concerns and celebrate with other people experiencing memory challenges and their care partners. Attendees enjoy refreshments, conversation, and activities in a relaxed, supportive setting.  A caregiver must accompany participants requiring special assistance. A Memory Cafe offers a participatory program or guest facilitator each month.
