Alzheimer's Cafe'

"Nova Scotia recently added a special kind of cafe' among its many -- one designed to meet the needs of people with Alzheimer's disease," AARP. April 2011

What a great idea. An informal place where people with dementia and their caregivers can gather to share ideas and support. Our area does not have this type of cafe', but we can try to do the same gathering and supporting each other via this and other blogs and online newsletters. Or, we can start a dementia cafe' in our own area. There is a support group that meets in our area, but it is only for caregivers -- which intrigues me. What do they (it is government sponsored) think we are going to do with the care receiver for 2 hours?! Seems so much better to me for there to be a support group in which both caregiver and care receiver could meet, or at lest, an option for both to attend.
