Supervisor Alexander to Attend Opening of Memory Café
Update: The opening of the Memory Café was wonderful! There was good southern style food, and the owners really demonstrated how committed they are to the community! I was honored to attend!
MILWAUKEE (August 15, 2017) – Supervisor Deanna Alexander will attend the opening of a new “memory café,” in Milwaukee at 1:00pm on Thursday at Daddy’s Soul Food Grille, located at 754 N. 27th Street.
The Milwaukee County Department on Aging has established several memory cafés in coordination with the Alzheimer’s Association of Southeastern Wisconsin, the Aging and Disability Resource Center, the Milwaukee Public Museum and the Wisconsin Alzheimer’s Institute.
Thursday’s ribbon cutting event will celebrate the opening of the memory café at Daddy’s Soul Food Grille, one of many such cafes in Milwaukee County, but only the second one in the City of Milwaukee.
Memory cafés are important building blocks in creating dementia friendly communities. They are designed to make quality of life measurably better for individuals and families impacted by dementia.
Supervisor Alexander will join County Executive Chris Abele as well as several other dignitaries and community members, including those whose quality of life was improved due to their participation at memory cafés.
