Memory Cafe

A Memory Café is a place where people with dementia, their families and professional caregivers come to meet once a month. Memory Cafés are intended to be a real café. Although there is a support, and educational component to the Café, the focus is to provide a warm, relaxed environment for social interaction without judgment. Families who come to the Memory Café each month enjoy refreshments, entertainment, education and friendship.

Memory Cafés now being offered in 5 communities across New Brunswick!
Fredericton - Moncton - Rexton - Rothesay - St. Stephen

Exciting Volunteer Opportunity!
