I would be interested in receiving more information about this to give out in our Ozaukee County Caregiver Coalition. This coalition
was started to support family caregivers whom need a place to vent, look for resources or help other caregivers get thru difficult
times with their loved ones.
I just emailed you information on setting up a Memory Cafe. I look forward to chatting once you have time to review.
I’d be interested in joining the Cafe if you have one in the San Francisco Bay Area in California. I live 22 miles Northeast of San Francisco.
Your post is from a couple of years ago, but I wanted to let you know that there are Memory Cafés now in San Francisco and Marin counties! We have groups meeting 3 days per week and space available for new members. You can read more about what we offer at http://www.memorycarecafe.org or call 415-409-8996 for more information. Hope you are able to join us!

Hi… I am interested in more of this… and I am in South Carolina, Columbia, to be exact.. you say you have been contacted by someone from South Carolina.. if you can give them my email please do as I feel the more of us interested can work together… my husband and my sister in law both have this horrible disease… and I am caregiver to both… thank you
I am interested in bringing this concept to Texas and would appreciate any information you are willing to share.
When I first read about Memory Cafes in the U.K., I felt as though I had found my voice. My business as an elder advocate has seen good times and bad times but a for-profit geriatric care management agency has to charge for a staffing so we tend to cater to those who can afford services. As a former activities director providing cognitive stimulation to those with dementia, I have wanted to provide services to caregivers and their loved ones at no cost and I may have found a way to do so. Would love to have your guidance if you’ve got the time. Thank you.

The Alzheimer’s & Dementia Alliance of Wisconsin started “Cafe Connections Memory Cafe” in Sauk City, Wisconsin in June, 2012, and a second Memory Cafe at the Middleton Senior Center in Middleton, Wisconsin, in October of 2012.

This is such great news. We are so glad to hear the news!
