It doesn&#39;t provide medical care. And it&rsquo;s not a support group in the traditional sense.&nbsp;</p> Wed, 16 Oct 2013 16:53:36 +0000 Rick Howlett 7230 at http://wfpl.org Louisville's Memory Cafe Gives People With Dementia, Caregivers a Place to Take a Break Louisville's First Memory Cafe to Open Today http://wfpl.org/post/louisvilles-first-memory-cafe-open-today <p>The University of Louisville School of Nursing and the local chapter of the Alzheimer’s Association are teaming up to open <a href="http://louisville.edu/nursing/news-archive/memory-cafe">Louisville’s first Memory Café</a>.</p><p>It’s a social group gathering where people struggling with Alzheimer’s or dementia can socialize and take a break from the routines associated with their disease.</p> Mon, 26 Aug 2013 12:15:00 +0000 Rick Howlett 6592 at http://wfpl.org Louisville's First Memory Cafe to Open Today
