Waukesha, WI – Memory Cafés offer the opportunity for those individuals who are living with Mild Cognitive Impairment (MCI), early-stage Alzheimer’s disease or other dementia, and their care partners a safe and fun way to share stories and socialize with others who have concerns about their memory. In 2016 four public libraries within the Waukesha and Milwaukee County Systems have partnered as the Four Points Library Memory Project to host monthly Memory Cafés. These Memory Cafes will rotate the third Tuesday of every month between the Hales Corners Public Library, Franklin Public Library, Muskego Public Library and the New Berlin Public Library. The Kick-Off for this initiative will be held at the New Berlin Public Library on Tuesday, January 19th from 2-3:30 and features Memory Café advocate John McFadden. John McFadden and his wife, Susan, have travelled to England to see Memory Cafés first hand. The concept inspired them to bring it back to the United States and have co-facilitated Memory Cafés in the Fox Valley.
