Who we are
The Alzheimer's Network of Oregon is a nonprofit network of experienced volunteers offering support and resources to persons with memory loss, their families and caregivers through the Memory Café.
The Memory Café is a monthly meeting for people with dementia and Alzheimer's to connect with each other.
Connection: We love creating time to make sure that those suffering with memory loss can connect with each other, and with those coming to support them.
Community: Memory Café is an opportunity for those suffering with memory loss to come together and have fun. We create a safe space for your loved one to do activities such as crafts, planting flowers, learning to Hula dance, and more. When you leave Memory Café, you will leave knowing that you have people around to support you.
Family: Memory Café encourages people to come and spend time together as a family. With your loved one suffering memory loss, we offer a unique opportunity for spending time alongside others doing the same.
Safe Environment: Whether with a caregiver or family member, Memory Café creates a safe space for those suffering memory loss to be themselves with those that love them. Restaurants can be loud and chaotic, causing anxiety, lack of communication, and confusion for those suffering memory loss. Memory Café allows those with memory loss to be somewhere they can be safe and comfortable.Read more
