The Holiday season can be stressful on all of us. And, for those of us who love someone with cognitive impairment and memory loss, or who those deal with it themselves, this season can feel especially hectic. To help you and your loved ones ease into 2020, once the Christmas fun and New Year celebrations have subsided, FUMCFW will begin the 5th Street Café Dementia Friendly Social Club!
The 5th Street Café is a new venture by Dementia Friendly Fort Worth and its partners, held at First United Methodist Church of Fort Worth on the first and third Wednesday of every month from 10:30 am to noon in our Justin Building’s Asbury Room. This friendly gathering of people with self-reported memory loss, mild cognitive impairment, or a diagnosis of some type of dementia or Alzheimer’s Disease offers the opportunity for social engagement, friendship, and a break from the daily routine for people in the early stages of dementia.
Starting on January 8, 2020 this warm and welcoming Café experience will be in full swing! Registration is required. For more information, please contact Gail Snider, Dementia Friendly Fort Worth Executive Director firstname.lastname@example.org | 817-332-6266
