Members speak honestly as to why

these gatherings are not your everyday “support group.”

I would like to thank the members of Arthur’s Memory Cafe for being so kind to share their personal thoughts with us. I believe their honesty will help remove the fear of diagnosis and engagement.   Each of them was amazing in their own way.  Thank you  Ollie and Dixielee, George and Annie, John and Virgina and Bill.  Kudos for raising awareness.

The 12 Days of Christmas Care Partnering Song©

 

On the 1st day of Christmas my Angel Gave to me

(And) a mind set to embrace change

On the 2nd day of Christmas the Angel Gave to me

Grace to let go

On the 3rd day of Christmas the Angel Gave to me

Coping skills

On the 4th day of Christmas the Angel Said to me

Look for the joy

On the 5th day of Christmas the Angel Gave to me

Great Insights

On the 6th day of Christmas the Angel Gave to me

Gratitude and love

On the 7th day of Christmas the Angle Said to me

Savor each moment

On the 8th day of Christmas the Angle Gave to me

Hope and compassion

On the 9th day of Christmas the Angel Said to me

Live to be playful

On the 10th day of Christmas the Angel Said to me

Self care is (cares) important

On the 11th day of Christmas the Angel Said to me

Perfect doesn’t matter

On the 12th day of Christmas the Angel Saw in me

My sanity is back!

J. Arthur’s Memory Cafe

Dedicates a Song to

the UK Memory Cafes

In celebration of the holiday season, we at J. Arthur’s Memory Café in Roseville, Minnesota felt it was only right to show our appreciation to the UK Memory Cafés for so graciously sharing their Memory Café Concept with us. 

We are filled with Gratitude!

Although many of our members were not able to join us due to busy holiday schedule, others gladly came out to show their support in our silly but very sincere video to the UK. 

Below are the lyrics to:

The 12 Days of Christmas Memory Café Song©
