What is ACTive Memories Memory Cafe?
The Memory Café is a social gathering that provides a safe, supportive environment for sharing conversation in a relaxed atmosphere. It is an opportunity to visit with others who may be going through similar experiences related to memory loss, Parkinson's, MS, other chronic conditions and caregiving. The programming consists of exercise, snack, and social activity to promote healthy living. The social activity rotates monthly; the themes are music, art, education/extended learning, and reminisce.

People with memory loss, MS, Parkinson's, disabilities of all ages, and other chronic conditions are welcome to attend the Memory Café along with their companions.
