A new Peninsula Volunteers program debuts this Tuesday, Aug 16 at Little House in Menlo Park. Called the Alzheimer’s Café, it’s described as “a place and opportunity that brings together people living with dementia, their families, and their caregivers in a warm and inviting atmosphere that nurtures friendship and mutual support.”
Emails Little House program manager Julie Scales: “Based on the work of Dutch psychologists, the Café is a place where everyone can be themselves, share experiences, and learn from one another. There’s no agenda, only the opportunity to socialize and enjoy a day out in a creative environment. Feel free to stop in and become part of this growing movement.”
The Alzheimer’s Café will be held on the third Tuesday of every month from 2:00 to 4:00 pm. There is no charge. Little House is located at 800 Middle Ave.
