What is a Library Memory Project?
A Memory Café is a social gathering for those who are experiencing early stage dementia, mild memory loss or mild cognitive impairment (MCI), and a family member or care partner. The Café is a place to have fun, share experiences, and stay socially connected.
We are proud to announce that the Germantown Community Library will be participating the the Library Memory Project in collaboration with Waukesha and Milwaukee Counties beginning January 2018!!! Memory Cafés will be held on the 3rd Monday of each month from 3:00 – 4:30 p.m. on a rotating basis with Menomonee Falls, Brookfield, and Elm Grove libraries. Exact locations will be announce shortly.
Join us as we kick-off the project on December 6, 2017 at 3:00 p.m. or 6:00 p.m. as former Wisconsin Governor Martin Schreiber discusses his book My Two Elaines and his experience as a caregiver for his wife, Elaine.
Register for a Memory Cafe:
A Memory Café is for those who are experiencing early stage dementia, mild memory loss or cognitive impairment and their care partners. They’re not well suited for those in group care or for people to attend alone if they have specific care needs.
First time attendees should contact the Alzheimer’s Association for more information or RSVP for the next Memory Café at 800-272-3900.
