May 2019: Memory Cafes Offer Special Gathering Place
Memory Cafes hold a very special place in the lives of individuals living with dementia (of any/all types) and those who are in their caregivers. The value of the Memory Café outings are immeasurable and offer a fun shared experience, in an understanding and compassionate atmosphere, with structured activities. Previous activities have included chalk drawing, ceramics painting, and photo collages creations. The Memory Cafes provided by the Camarillo Health Care District occur quarterly, on Saturdays, from 11:00am-12:30pm, with lunch provided, and are held at the Studio Channel Islands (SCI) Blackboard Gallery. Guests are welcomed to view the featured exhibit(s) in the gallery as well as tour the artist studios located on that campus before and after the Memory Café. Attending the Memory Café is free of charge due to the generous support of the Camarillo Ambers Light Lions Club and Studio Channel Islands. Please call 805-388-1952, extension 100 to make a reservation.
