Being involved with Memory Cafes follows our mission of keeping individuals as independent as possible, while providing a safe space to those who may need some socialization. Margaret Perras and Amy Gagne, with Right At Home Boston Northwest and Dementia Live certified trainers, facilitate the Memory Cafes in Belmont, Acton, and Concord.

Belmont Memory Cafe

What is a Memory Cafe?

A memory cafe is a welcoming place for people with Dementia, forgetfulness or other changes in their thinking and for their caregivers, family and friends. Memory cafes meet at a variety of places including coffeehouses, museums, senior centers or community centers. Each memory cafe is different, some may offer education about memory changes, others may invite guest artists. One thing all cafes share are the goals of helping guests feel comfortable and to know that they are not alone. Cafes are a place to talk with others who understand what you are going through, to leave behind limitations and instead focus on strengths, to enjoy other’s company, and to explore something new.
