Alzheimer Cafe debuts Tuesday

The Greenwood Senior Center has created an “Alzheimer’s Café,” the second of its kind in the country. It debuts next Tuesday at Mae’s Phinney Ridge Café, 6412 Phinney Ave. N.

Modeled after a movement in Europe of social gatherings for people with Alzheimer’s and their care partners, the Alzheimer Cafe provides an opportunity to get out and socialize in a safe environment. “Safe in the way that people can be themselves with no judgment and no expectations,” said Jytte Lokvig, who has created the first café in the US in Santa Fe, New Mexico.
Our neighborhood café will have its first gathering on Tuesday, August 9 from 3:30 – 5 pm and Mae’s fabulous ice cream will make this first gathering an ice cream social. Free program cost is your café order only.
To learn more about the Alzheimer Café call Greenwood Senior Center social worker Carin Mack, MSW, at 206.297.0875 or 206.230.0166.
