This month, author Barbara Mark-Dreyfuss, who has been active in the JFCS Story Telling program from JFCS’ Creative Aging Project, will be sharing one of her stories from her youth in Minneapolis. In addition, Janet Arnold Rees will introduce “Storywise,” a “thoughtfully curated collection of topics designed to spark memories, tap into experiences and create a wiser, more connected world – one story at a time.” The program includes “story prompts” to engage the participants. Everyone who wants to share their stories will be encouraged to do so. The Storywise program is made possible through Atria Senior Living.

The Café is a meeting place for those with changes in their thinking or memory, mild cognitive impairment or dementia due to Alzheimer’s disease or a related disorder, along with their care partners. Offered on the first Thursday of the month, each Café has a new theme and includes meaningful, fun activities to engage the participants and stimulate their minds and bodies. Socialization is a key component to the cafés, as they are meant to be a place to relax, meet others and have fun in a nurturing and accepting environment. Coffee and snacks are provided.

There is no charge to attend, but registration is required. To register or for further information, please e-mail Kathy.rood@jfcsaz.org or call Kathy at 602-452-4627.
