Help and hope for families affected by Alzheimer's and related dementias

Free Gathering Place Socials

Gathering Places are hosted by area congregations; trained volunteers offer socials from 10 am to 2 pm once each month at each church. Caregivers may leave their family members who have memory disorders and use that time to rest. 

Participants enjoy reminiscing, exercise, music, dance, arts and crafts, games, and a hot lunch. There is no charge to attend the socials, but the caregiver must complete a registration form and provide a letter from a doctor specifying the type of memory impairment.
