Memory Care Café organizes social gatherings and active participation for people with shifting cognitive abilities (due to Alzheimer's Disease and other forms of dementia) and their care partners. Our nonprofit depends on the foresight and generosity of supporters like you! Donations to Memory Care Café will expand our ability to serve those in need 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% are being cared for 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. We emphasize acceptance without focusing on the disease perspective, and provide social and emotional connections for both partners. In addition, care partners have fun togethera form of light respitewithout the stress of separation that can happen with formal respite services.

In the past three and a half years Memory Care Café has gathered for adventures in over 150 Bay Area locations, including free, monthly luncheons Crossroads Café on the Embarcadero in San Francisco, and Jules Thin Crust Organic Pizza in Rockridge/Oakland. The groups are steadily growing and attendance is free for everyone, allowing us to welcome people from every walk of life. 

We are the only Memory Café serving San Francisco, Marin and the East Bay. We believe that it's important to organize gatherings and outings for the growing number of people with dementia and their care partners who age at home, and help prevent social isolation. Your contribution will help with the continued operation of Memory Care Café, its growth, mission and vision.

Thank you for considering a donation to Memory Care Café. Together we are making strides towards a more Forgetfulness Friendly Bay Area!
