The Alzheimer's Cafe Model: A Guide to Getting Started in Your Community
The Alzheimer's Cafe (or Memory Cafe) model has become a popular and effective way to promote social connection among people with memory loss and their loved ones. In this free webinar, discover how to bring this model to your community. Learn about identifying partners, selecting a host site, planning, promoting and running the program.
