Program description

One of the most important things that you can do to promote your brain health and live well despite cognitive changes is to stay socially connected and active. It's also important to have a supportive network of family, friends and service providers to draw upon when needed.

By attending a Brain Wave Café, you can accomplish both these goals.

What happens at a Brain Wave Café?

If you're concerned about your cognitive change and dementia, the Brain Wave Café will provide you with an opportunity to:

  • Learn more about brain health and dementia,
  • Ask questions and voice any concerns you may have, and
  • Become familiar with the resources and supports in your community.

These cafés offer an informal place to meet up with other people with similar experiences on a regular basis. It's a great spot to have a coffee together, get information, share experiences and participate in 'healthy brain' activities within your local community or in a virtual setting.

Who can participate?

Individuals concerned about their memory, individuals living with cognitive change or dementia, care partners, family and friends are all welcome!

How do I register?
