Please join us on Tuesday, July 9, 2019, at the Roche Community Center in West Roxbury for our monthly Memory Café program, a social gathering where people with memory loss and their caregivers can come together in a safe, supportive environment. Guests can share conversation over a cup of coffee in a relaxed atmosphere that sometimes includes music, art, or other forms of entertainment or therapy.

 This month we will be featuring Joy for All Companion Pets, life-like, robotic animals that are designed specifically for older adults and their caregivers to bring comfort, companionship, and fun. They work to calm anxiety, improve communication, increase social engagement, decrease loneliness, and provide a better quality of life!
