Adult Service Librarian Katie Haasch is in the beginning phases of creating a Memory Cafe. While the title evokes nostalgia, it is not a drive-in diner. A Memory Cafe is a safe place catering to those suffering from early-onset dementia. Haasch says qualified volunteers are needed.
The endeavor is in its early stages but Haasch is looking to run the Cafe during the work week. This would allow caregivers to stimulate their charges with experiences outside of the home. Galvanizing the brain can help halt the disease's progress.
