What is a Memory Café?

A Memory Cafe is a social gathering for individuals living with memory loss and their care partners. Care partners can include spouses, children, friends, and professional caregivers.

Who has memory loss?

  • People who have had strokes, dementia or Alzheimer’s Disease.

Why should someone come to the Memory Café?

  • Memory loss is an isolating condition and at the Memory Café people can meet others and share their experiences.

  • For care partners, the café can provide respite “with” the person who has memory loss. They provide an opportunity to have fun together, not just to focus on problems.

What will I do there?

  • Enjoy a baked good, coffee or tea.

  • Participate in the planned activities or just sit and chat with others. It’s up to you.

  • Form new friendships, talk, draw, create crafts, do chair yoga, play bingo and much more.

Is there a cost?

  • The Memory Café is free.

When is the Memory Café?

  • The second and fourth Friday of the month from 10-11:30 AM. Please note the change of dates for November and December.

Where is the Memory Café?

  • The Memory Café is at The Gathering Place for Community, Arts & Education located at 304 S. State Street in Clarks Summit on the first floor of the Clarks Summit Borough Building.
