Memory Cafes: How to start a dementia friendly program in your community

This presentation provides an overview of the different types of dementia and common symptoms, explains what it means to be "dementia friendly" and the meaning of the purple angel symbol and how to use it in your programming. The focus of the presentation, however, is outlining the steps for starting a memory cafe in your community. It includes examples of different formats and links to additional resources and information.
