Dementia-Friendly Community Events

  • The Momentia calendar lists community-based arts, fitness, social and volunteer opportunities designed for persons living with memory loss and their families.

These informal gatherings are a chance for persons living with memory loss and their families to connect with others having a similar experience, while enjoying a cup of coffee in a relaxed community space.
