BCYF Grove Hall Senior Center Memory Café
On June 3rd Standish Village will be hosting the Dementia Experience Workshop from 11am - 1pm.
The Dementia Experience is an interactive training that looks to create empathy for those who live with dementia through an intense and interactive training. Through the use of sensory modifications and role playing activities, participants are asked to re-enact typical daily activities, such as taking medications and preparing meals, “while under the influence of dementia”. Through this 1.5 hour program, one is better able to build empathy and understanding for those who live with dementia.

Lunch will be catered. We want to ensure an accurate amount of lunches are ordered.
To RSVP or for more information, please contact: Aidee Pomales or Ayana Green at 617.635.1487

What is a Memory Café??? A Memory Cafe is a place for where individuals with memory loss and their caregivers can get together in a safe, supportive and engaging environment. It is a time and place where people can interact, laugh, find supports, share concerns and celebrate with other people experiencing memory challenges and their care partners. Attendees enjoy refreshments, conversation and activities in a relaxed, supportive setting. A caregiver must accompany participants requiring special assistance. A Memory Cafe offers a participatory program or guest facilitator each month.
