Attend Memory Café on the second Thursday of each month!

As a residential senior assisted living facility, ComfortCare Homes in Wichita, KS provides specialized memory care for seniors with Alzheimer’s disease and dementia. However, our Residences are not the only type of care services we provide. We also make an effort to support and provide resources for spouses, family caregivers, and adults in the early stages of Alzheimer’s. While these individuals do not need full-time care that can be found at our Residences, ComfortCare Homes recognizes their needs and aims to support them.

On the second Thursday of each month, the Alzheimer’s Association Central and Western Kansas Chapter hosts “Memory Café.” This program is a social event for adults who have received an early-stage Alzheimer’s diagnosis. Memory Café aims to engage adults and their families who are dealing with this difficult diagnosis. Centered around conversation, coffee and doughnuts, this informal gathering helps provide emotional support for those in our community affected by early-stage Alzheimer’s.

Memory Café also integrates senior assisted living activities into each gathering. Art therapy is part of this monthly program. This unique self-expression in a group setting is a good conversation starter, allowing those who have received an early-stage Alzheimer’s diagnosis a natural start to discussing their feelings, doubts, hopes, and concerns. The Memory Cafe is part of the JW & Reola Stark Arts and Inspiration Program.

For complete event information, including how to RSVP, please view the brochure here.

Building a community of care early on in the Alzheimer’s process can be instrumental for family members, caregivers, and those who are suffering from the disease. Knowing that there are others in our community experiencing the same situation as you can be comforting. Social events such as Memory Café encourage sharing of resources, educational events, and more. It is helpful to have friends by your side when things become difficult.

While the Memory Café is an event specifically for adults who have received an early-stage Alzheimer’s diagnosis, events, groups, and senior assisted living programs are available for all types of people impacted by Alzheimer’s disease. To learn more, please contact ComfortCare Homes in Wichita, KS, today.
