Memory Care Café provides free social gatherings and active participation for people with changing cognitive abilities (due to Alzheimer's Disease and other forms of dementia) as well as their care partners. Each meeting is organized and hosted by experienced memory café facilitators, with occasional volunteer support.

Our nonprofit depends on the generosity and foresight of supporters like you. Your tax free donation will expand much needed support of local dementia care partners and help raise awareness about making our Bay Area communities more “Forgetfulness Friendly”.

The need is compelling: 
  • 25,000 people in San Francisco are living with memory loss
  • Approximately 70% live at home
  • Isolation and lack of engagement are common problems
  • People with dementia and their caregivers are less likely to use traditional, senior support services
Memory Care Café gatherings are different from traditional support groups.
Participants are encouraged to have fun together with a focus is on social and emotional connections for both care partners. It's a form of light respite, without the stress of separation.

This is
 the only Memory Café serving San Francisco, Marin and the East Bay. We have found that these gatherings and outings offer meaningful support for the growing number of people with dementia and their care partners who age at home, and help prevent social isolation.

"Memory Care Café promotes intimacy and connection in the couple's relationship, while at the same time allowing them to enjoy the benefits of socializing with others. I recommend this program to all my clients with early stage memory loss and their partners! "  –Natasha Boissier, LCSW, Clinical Social Worker, UCSF

Your contribution will help with the continued operation of Memory Care Café, its growth, mission and vision.
