WHAT'S A MEMORY CAFE?

Loneliness and social isolation are growing problems in our country, especially seniors. Social isolation is one the risk factor for developing dementia in late life as per the recent Lancet study. The need for out-of-the-box thinking is acute. In fact instead of only prescribing a drug for someone, doctors in UK, Canada are now prescribing social activities , they are sending them to the local bingo hall or museum, recommending therapeutic art or to sing in a choir. Keeping this in mind, Echoing Healthy Ageing (EHA) is hosting the Mumbai Memory Café.

Our events are dementia friendly, we encourage people with dementia(early, moderate stage) to join in group session with their caregiver(family member) to spend quality time with each other while working on art project or singing out loud their favourite songs.
