The group met in the afternoon after Mae’s closed for regular business for the day.
From Cecily Kaplan, Greenwood Senior Center Director:
Modeled after a large movement in Europe and only one other established café in the US, the Alzheimer’s Café is a café for people with memory loss and their care partners providing an outlet for interaction, an opportunity to get out and socialize in a safe environment. No judgment, no expectation…just support, good food and fun!
Thank you to Jeanne Barwick at Mae’s Phinney Ridge Café, Faerland Terrace, Rosewood Courte for their support of the Alzheimer Café.
The Alzheimer’s Café will take place on the second Tuesday of the month from 3:30-5 p.m. at Mae’s Phinney Ridge Café, 6412 Phinney Ave. N. No reservations necessary; the only cost is your dessert and drink. For more information, call GSC Social Worker Carin Mack at 206-297-0875.
