Library Memory Project & Memory Screening

The majority of our in-person programs have been put on hold due to COVID-19 until further notice. We currently have Grab & Go activities (both registration and first-come-first-serve) and other program options below.  All kits can be picked up at the Welcome Table in the lobby.

Below is a list of virtual options for those experiencing memory loss and/or their caregivers:

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.  The Wild Plum Memory Cafe rotates on the 3rd Monday of each month at 3:00 – 4:30 p.m. between libraries in Brookfield, Elm Grove, Germantown, Menomonee Falls and Sussex.

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.

Memory Screenings

Memory Screenings are available through the Aging & Disability Resource Center of Washington County.

A memory screen is a wellness tool that helps identify possible changes in memory and cognition.  It creates a baseline of where a person is at so that future changes can be monitored.  The screening is free and only takes about 10 minutes.

Memory screenings are available to anyone and can be scheduled by calling Tammy Dickman at 262-335-4497.
