Library Memory Project & Memory Screening

Below are links to events for those experiencing memory loss and/or their caregivers:

What is the Library Memory Project?

  • The Library Memory Project is a partnership between public libraries in Waukesha, Milwaukee, and Washington County with a mission to provide programs to provide programs to those affected by memory loss, Alzheimer’s disease, and other forms of dementia. Libraries involved in the Memory Project offer Memory Cafés and educational programs on memory loss and brain health.
  • A Memory Café is a social gathering for those who are experiencing early stage dementia, mild memory loss or mild cognitive impairment (MCI), and for their families, friends, or care partners.  Memory Café is a place to have fun, share experiences, and stay socially connected.  Germantown Community Library is part of the Wild Plum Memory Café in collaboration with Waukesha and Milwaukee Counties.  The Wild Plum Memory Café 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.
  • Memory Cafés are not well suited for those in group care or for people to attend alone if they have specific care needs.
  • If you have questions about whether a Memory Café is right for you, call Angela Meyers at 262-896-8245.

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.
