Memory Cafes, an important component of dementia-friendly communities, provide people with mild to moderate dementia and their care partners a safe place and time to enjoy meaningful social connection together. Timberline Church has hosted a memory café for just over a year. The café attenders meet on the third Monday of each month from 10:00 AM-11:30 AM. We typically have a theme each month and begin our gatherings with a devotional reading and introductions. We incorporate snacks, music, reminiscing, conversational games, hands-on activities, and laughter-- lots of laughter. Friendships have developed. Joy is shared. Our attendance continues to grow. We also have memory cafes on the 3rd Wednesdays of the month in Windsor at Good Samaritan Water Valley, 805 Compassion Drive 1-2:30 pm and in Loveland at HomeWell Senior Care 1401 S. Taft Ave #207 1-2:30 pm. Newcomers welcome to join us at our memory cafes where it becomes obvious that connecting on an emotional and spiritual level is vital--and fun--especially for people with cognitive impairment and those who love them. To quote a dear friend, “just because you lose your mind, doesn’t mean you lose your soul.” People in Dementia-Friendly Communities know that.
