Press release from Aging and Disability Resource Center of the Lakeshore

The Kewaunee Memory Café is changing its meeting time. Previously 2:30-4 p.m., the Kewaunee Memory Café will now meet 10-11:30 a.m. on the third Wednesday of the month, still at the Kewaunee Public Library, 822 Juneau St., Kewaunee.

What is a memory café? The memory café is a social gathering place for persons with memory loss, mild cognitive impairment, early Alzheimer’s, or other dementia and their family and friends in a supportive environment. Experiencing memory loss can make the world a bit more confusing at times. Sometimes we need to search for the words to express ourselves. Social events that used to be fun are now challenging. It’s easier to stay home and avoid any embarrassing moments. We worry about what others are thinking about us. But it gets lonely, and we miss being out.

The café is a great opportunity for discussion, informative gathering, refreshments, as well as engaging activities based on a theme for the month.
