CHEER Hosts Memory Cafe
This month, Memory Café will be having an outdoor picnic at the John T. West Park just three blocks from the Ocean View CHEER Center. Memory Café is open to the public and free of charge. Relaxation exercises by CHEER’s yoga instructor will also be provided. An RSVP is requested as each guest is requested to bring a dish to share.
Living with memory loss can be challenging, especially for caregivers. In addition to the many physical and emotional challenges, the caregiver is often unable or unwilling to leave his or her loved one, resulting in social isolation. Memory Café provides a safe environment for people with memory loss and their care partners to laugh, learn, and to be socially engaged with others who are traveling the same journey. This program is not an adult day care program, nor one that provides personal or medical care. The caregiver/family member is responsible for their loved one.
For questions or directions, please contact Yolanda Gallego at [email protected] or 302-539-2671.
