Cambridge Connections Memory Cafe


Memory Cafe friends

Over 130,000 people in Massachusetts live with Alzheimer’s or another condition that causes the symptoms of dementia – memory loss, difficulty making decisions and communicating, and disorientation or confusion. 

Individuals living with dementia as well as their spouse, children or others who are close to them often become socially isolated, due to stigma and lack of public understanding about dementia, as well as the difficulty in managing daily tasks.

However, we are fortunate in Massachusetts to have over 85 free programs called Memory Cafes, including one at the Cambridge Citywide Senior Center on the third Friday of each month.

Memory Cafés are welcoming social gatherings for people living with memory loss, forgetfulness and dementia and their family, friends and caregivers. These gatherings offer a safe and inclusive space that features conversation, activities, and light refreshments.
