Great Turnout For First Alzheimer Café

The first Alzheimer Café in Seattle made its debut on Tuesday, August 9. 30 guests filled one of the rooms at Mae’s Phinney Ridge Café after hours and enjoyed an afternoon of conversation, community and of course some of Mae’s delicious desserts.

Modeled after a large movement in Europe and only one other established café in the US, the Alzheimer Café is a café for people with memory loss and their care partners providing an outlet for interaction, an opportunity to get out and socialize in a safe environment. No judgment, no expectation…just support, good food and fun!

This Alzheimer Café is created and run by the Greenwood Senior Center, a program of the Phinney Neighborhood Association. The Alzheimer Café will take place on the 2nd Tuesday of the month from 3:30-5 pm and will be held at Mae’s Phinney Ridge Café, 6412 Phinney Avenue N. No reservations are necessary and the only cost is your dessert and/or drink. There is neighborhood parking available including at the Phinney Neighborhood Center just north of the café at the corner of 67th and Phinney.

Thank you to Jeanne Barwick at Mae’s Phinney Ridge Café, Faerland Terrace, Rosewood Courte for their support of the Alzheimer Café.
