Two Memory Café Events –
Alzheimer’s Patients & Caregivers – Roseville Minnesota
Saint Paul, Minn., July 09, 2011 – AlzheimersSpeaks.com, a leading provider of education and support for Alzheimer’s patients and their caregivers, ACR Healthcare Group, The Alzheimer’s Research Center, The Minnesota Memory Project, and The Center for Dementia and Alzheimer’s Care of Health Partners, today jointly announced the opening of the United States’ first “Memory Café.” The Café will give Alzheimer’s patients and their personal caregivers the opportunity to meet and provide mutual social support to one another. To launch the Café, the group has arranged two open houses for the public which are free of charge.
Lori La Bey, founder of AlzheimersSpeaks.com, has dealt with memory loss through her mother’s thirty year journey with dementia. “When my mother was first diagnosed with memory loss years ago it was nearly impossible for me to find information about the disease or caregiving. We need to create community through unity and give care to those dealing with Alzheimer’s. We need to do it now because there is no time to wait for a cure. The numbers are rising and the needs of patients and caregivers are sky rocketing.”
