WHAT IS MEMORY CAFE'?
A Memory Cafe' is a safe, supportive environment, designed to engage attendees in cognitive activities to perk up memory. The goal of The Park Forest Public Library's memory cafe' is to keep attendees mentally and socially active, which research shows is protective of brain health. The Memory Cafe' is free and open to all older adults with or without current memory concerns. Guest speakers are occasionally scheduled, and community resource information is available. All families, friends and their caregivers are welcome to attend.
