Peregrine's Landing Senior Community and The Clubhouse Bro's Family Restaurant have partnered to bring "Memory Lane Café" to Niagara County, to assist those affected by Alzheimer's and dementia-related diseases and their families.
The first meeting, for caregivers only, was held April 17 at the Wheatfield restaurant. Individuals discussed some of their struggles as caregivers, while enjoying a spaghetti and stuffed pepper dinner.
Memory Lane Café is designed to bring together people with Alzheimer's disease, their caregivers and trained professionals in a non-institutional setting where they can have refreshments, food, entertainment, group activities and network with peers.
Those who missed the first meeting are still welcome to attend the next Memory Lane Café scheduled for Wednesday, May 15. This time, they can bring a loved one affected by memory loss for dinner and a special activity.
The free event will be held once a month on the third Wednesday of the month at The Clubhouse Bro's Family Restaurant, 3386 Niagara Falls Blvd., Wheatfield. A $5 dinner is available, which includes beverages and desserts provided courtesy of the Clubhouse and activity material provided by Peregrine's Landing Senior Community. The May 15 meeting will include making gardening boxes and musical entertainment. Call to confirm attendance at 716-474-3089.
