Mosaic Home Care Services will be welcoming back the First Link® Memory Café on Tuesday, January 27th, 2015 the first of its kind in the GTA.
Across Europe memory cafés have been popping up. From “dementia villages” in the Netherlands, “dementia hubs” in Newbury, UK, and the UK’s first purpose built dementia café in Bromley a new trend of treating people with dementia and Alzheimer’s has developed in Europe.
At memory cafés people with dementia are given a comfortable and open space where they can talk about dementia with their caregivers, and others as well. As the population age’s dementia will become a growing concern for the healthcare system and finding methods to treat people with dementia will become more important in the future. Along with the work of the Dotsa Bitove Wellness Academy which has been covered on this blog a number of times, it’s great to see the amount of specialized work that is being done around the world to fight dementia and Alzheimer’s. It’s important that movements like the memory café in Europe spread around the world to help our seniors and others who are suffering from this disease!
Mosaic Home Care Services will be welcoming back the First Link® Memory Café on Tuesday, January 27th, 2015 the first of its kind in the GTA. An ongoing work between Mosaic and Alzheimer Society of York Region, the First Link® Memory Café provides individuals with early stage forms of dementia, like Alzheimer’s, and their caregivers an environment where they can be themselves, ask questions and be open about dementia with everyone else. The Memory Café will be celebrating its 4 year anniversary this upcoming September, and has been an ongoing success for everyone involved!
