EPOCH Assisted Living at Melbourne and Home Instead Senior Care will open Berkshire County’s first memory café. Memory cafés are designed for people with early stage memory impairment as well their caregivers, partners, family and friends. The café provides a safe, supportive environment to share your experiences while remaining socially engaged with others traveling the same journey. Memory cafés first became popular in the Netherlands in 1997. Since then, they have become a valuable resource for people with memory loss and their care partners throughout the world.
The Pittsfield Memory Café is free and will be open the second Tuesday of each month from 10 to 11 a.m. Please RSVP by calling 413-499-1992. EPOCH Assisted Living at Melbourne is located at 140 Melbourne Road.
