This program is a social program that involved persons with dementia their families, and others from the general public who are interested in learning about dementia. The program occurs monthly, and the goal is socialization with an educational component. The Café includes a presentation on a different topic each month, followed by entertainment and refreshments. This program is geared towards people of all ages, and along all stages of the dementia journey.
