An Alzheimer’s Café is a way for people living with dementia, along with their friends and family, to have the simple yet meaningful experience of connecting with others and enjoying a tasty treat in a community setting.

In this model, a restaurant or café set aside a particular time to expressly welcome people living with dementia—with a simplified menu and staff who are aware of customers’ special needs.

An Alzheimer’s Café invites people living with dementia to maintain a place in the community, rather than becoming isolated or having to withdraw from enjoyable activities.

There is no set agenda. Families meet and socialize in an environment that is accepting and nonjudgmental.

We share Alzheimer’s Café events in Washington.
