Memory Café taking place in Kelso
Canterbury Gardens, a Koelsch Senior Community, announces a Memory Café, where people with memory loss and their care partners can come together to learn, laugh, and remain socially engaged with others traveling the same journey.
This event will be held at Elks Lodge 1482 (900 Ash St., Kelso) on Oct. 15th, at 11 a.m. A complimentary lunch and a keepsake photo will be included with the option to participate in a craft activity.
About 5.1 million Americans are affected by Alzheimer's disease, according to the Alzheimer's Foundation of America, and that number is only expected to rise as the population continues to age. As the number of people affected by Alzheimer's disease and other memory disorders continues to rise, Memory Cafés are thriving. Those affected with memory disorders feel comfortable around others who can relate, share personal stories, and even laugh about their situations.
To RSVP and for more information please contact Canterbury Gardens by October 10th call 360-423-2200. Seating is limited.
