LANGDON PLACE OF DOVER TO CONTINUE TO HOST MONTHLY DEMENTIA MEMORY CAFÉ

DOVER, NH – Langdon Place of Dover will begin the fourth year of hosting a free monthly Dementia Memory Café, the second Tuesday of each month. 

The Memory Café is hosted by Langdon Place of Dover, a Genesis Senior Living Community that includes Residential, Assisted Living, Memory Care & Rehabilitation Services.  We welcome back Cornerstone VNA as our participating partner for the fourth year in our Memory Cafes.  Cornerstone VNA is a non-profit organization providing home, health and hospice care to people of all ages living within thirty-five communities in New Hampshire and Maine.  Their expertise in home memory care includes providing several guest speakers as our memory café experts.

The next Memory Café is scheduled for Tuesday, March 10 from 1:30 to 3 pm at Langdon Place of Dover, 60 Middle Road in Dover.  The Memory Café will be open to the public.   People living with dementia along with their care partners and family members are encouraged to attend.  The Roundtable Topic for March will be Beating the Blues hosted by a guest speaker from Cornerstone VNA.

Operating the second Tuesday of each month from 1:30 to 3 pm, the Memory Café will begin at 1:30 pm with a short social where people living with dementia and their care partners/family members can enjoy a casual social gathering.  There is an opportunity at that time to discuss challenges a family may be facing to gather input from attendees and professionals to help families problem-solve these challenges.

Following the social, at 2 pm the caregivers will be offered a free monthly supporting roundtable with guest speakers who will discuss topics of interest to dementia caregivers.  The roundtable will last approximately 45 minutes.  During the roundtable, those with dementia who do not want to attend the roundtable, will be offered a fun activity to engage them while their caregivers are receiving support. 

Upcoming Memory Café monthly dates and roundtable topics include (date and topics can change periodically so be sure to check ahead) :  April 14 – Financing the Cost of Dementia Care; May 12 Walking in the Shoes of A Dementia Patient; June 9 – Traveling with a Loved One with Dementia; July 14 – Diet and Dementia; August 11 – Intimacy & Dementia; September 8 – Wellness for Dementia Caregivers; October 13 – Handling the Holidays For Families with Dementia Patients; November 10 – Palliative vs. Hospice Care – What is the Difference; December 8 – Holiday Social For All Attendees
