Memory Cafe, caregiver seminar planned in Gillett

The Wolf River Dementia and Caregiver Network plans to host a Memory Cafe from 1-3 p.m. April 17 at the Hillside Assembly of God Church in Gillett, in conjunction with the 2018 Spring Caregiver Conference. Those with mild memory issues, mild cognitive issues, dementia and their caregivers are welcome to join free activities, which will include painting, gardening and fishing.

Caregivers have the option to attend a seminar and learn more about available community resources or participate in activities of the Memory Cafe. Those interested in making new friends, gaining support and learning about new resources should contact Kayla Lemorande at the Aging Disability Resource Center at 715-526-4710 by Tuesday.
