Paint the Towne, in partnership with Dementia Friends Indiana and LifeStream Services, is rebooting their Memory Café on the first Monday of the month from 11:00am to 12:00pm beginning June 6 at their location at 411 North 8th St., Richmond, IN 47374.
People living with dementia and their caregivers are invited to a guided watercolor painting class that allows the individual to work at their own pace. Individuals are encouraged to engage in conversation while painting, if they wish. Memory Cafés offer those living with dementia a break from their normal routine as well as an opportunity to socialize and connect with others who are in a similar situation. LifeStream is proud to sponsor the Paint the Towne Memory Café, so participants may enjoy activities at no fee.
LifeStream is East Central Indiana’s Dementia Friends Administrator. Those who are interested in learning more or becoming a Dementia Friend can attend the Dementia Friends Information Session held on the second Tuesday of the month from 1:00pm to 2:00pm via Zoom. Register for an upcoming session at dementiafriendsindiana.org/events-calendar/
