Two MSW students start program to help people with dementia

Two MSW students, Wendy Kadens and Jessica Katz, have developed a new pilot program to help serve persons living with dementia. It is called the Memory Cafe.

This weekly program is a Durham community pilot to help individuals with mild cognitive impairment or early dementia get to know each other in a non-threatening but stimulating environment, over coffee and snacks. There is no charge to participate but donations are welcome.

The Memory Cafe will be held Thursday mornings from 10:00 a.m. to noon, Feb. 16 – April 12, 2012, at the Jewish Community Center (1937 Cornwallis Road, Durham, 919-354-4923).

Kadens and Katz are hoping that local agencies, organizations, and others who work with people with memory loss can help get the word out. Please feel free to post flyers in areas that may be appropriate.

If you have questions, contact Wendy Kadens at (919) 354-4925  ext. 125  or
