Memory Café NS


Welcome to Memory Café NS!

We are an Age-Friendly Communities Initiative to improve social and emotional well-being for older adults with memory challenges and their care partners and families. We are a nonprofit collaborative project between municipalities, local businesses, artists, health care providers, support organizations and volunteers.

Cafés are a central part of social life in all corners of Nova Scotia. They are ideal places to host events to ensure that older adults with cognitive and memory challenges feel welcome in their community. Memory Cafés are fun, positive social events that involve warm drinks, conversation and music in a local café.

This site was created to help promote the Memory Café concept throughout Nova Scotia. Click on Start a Café for ideas and tools to start your own Memory Café!
