Rhode Island Memory Cafés

A Memory Café is an opportunity for individuals with all forms of memory loss, and their care partners, to meet others with similar concerns, socialize, learn new skills and support each other as they travel their own path with dementia. The No. 1 goal at all Memory Cafés is to have fun! Cafés are free and open to anyone with dementia, their care partners, family and friends.

Healthy Habits in the New Year!

From the URI SNAP ED Program A new year is a great time to make healthy changes. As we age, it is important to focus on healthy habits that help our mental and physical health. It is never too late to start a new healthy habit!

Make healthy choices: Try adding one more serving of vegetables.

Exercise more often: Exercise lowers your risk for falls and chronic diseases.

Stay connected: Call or video chat with family and friends. Being social helps your mental health and lowers your risk of loneliness or social isolation.

Get quality sleep: 7 to 8 hours of sleep will help refresh your brain and give you energy.

Challenge your brain: Do more crossword puzzles, board games, arts and crafts, storytelling and computer activities.

Stay safe, healthy and hopeful!
