Purple Angels Memory Cafe
On the first Wednesday of the month, Marshfield Area Purple Angels hosts a memory cafe, a social event where people with memory loss and those who care about them come together in a safe and engaging environment. Trained volunteers provide fun and interesting activities and there are opportunities to learn about resources in the community. Marshfield Area Purple Angels memory cafe events are always free and open to anyone looking for support or more information about memory loss, Alzheimer's disease, and other forms of dementia.

Dementia Friendly Marshfield &Purple Angel Campaign
Most people with mild to moderate stage dementia are still living at home, either alone or with family members. The Purple Angel Campaign, started in the UK and now spreading globally, helps create "dementia aware" communities that support and protect people with Alzheimer's disease and other forms of dementia. The Wisconsin Department of Health Services is also promoting this initiative as part of the Wisconsin Dementia Care System Redesign Project. Marshfield Area Purple Angels has committed to lead this initiative in Marshfield. READ MORE HERE
Sing Along with Margaret
“Sing Along with Margaret” is a special project that brings meaningful music to people with Alzheimer’s disease and advanced dementia. This project is unique because this music is not only for people with dementia and Alzheimer’s disease, it is sung by a special lady who had the disease, and she continues to share her joy with others.
