Memory cafes being offered in Marlborough on April 24 and Sudbury on May 6
By Douglas Flynn / April 15, 2016
Pleasantries Adult Day and Consulting Services continues to provide support to those caring for a loved one with Alzheimer's or another dementia.

Pleasantries' "Create A Better Day Café" will hold its next session on Sunday, April 24, from 1-3 p.m. in Marlborough.

Pleasantries has also teamed with the Sudbury Senior Center to offer the next session of "The Caring Café" on Friday, May 6, from 9-11 a.m. in Sudbury. This session will feature singer Alexandria Bianco, who will perform and encourage attendees to sing along.

These Cafés offer an opportunity for people caring for a loved one with Alzheimer’s or other dementia a chance to get some needed relief while still spending time with your loved one and other caregivers in a relaxed and welcoming setting. The Cafés encourage socialization with other caregivers and loved ones where you can just be yourself. It provides an opportunity to get out with your loved one and have an enjoyable morning or afternoon.  

Pleasantries owner and director Tammy Pozerycki, MA, CADDCT, CDP, describes the Café as “a time to step out of the daily routine, leave the disease at the door, and enjoy a positive experience in a supportive environment. The afternoon will consist of entertainment, conversation, music, arts, games, refreshments, and most importantly, laughter.”

There is no cost to participate in the program, which is open to anyone at any stage of the disease process who is accompanied by friends, family and loved ones.

The Create A Better Day Café is held on the fourth Sunday of each month at Pleasantries Adult Day and Consulting Services (195 Reservoir Street, Marlborough, MA). For more information, please call Tammy at 508-481-0809 or email tammy@pleasantriesads.com. Due to the possibility of cancellation due to inclement weather or illness, please call prior to attending and listen to voice message for any updates.

The Caring Café is held on the first Friday of each month at the Sudbury Senior Center (40 Fairbank Road, Sudbury, MA). It is facilitated by Information and Referral Specialist Anne Manning, LMHC and Pozeryycki. Please RSVP by calling 978-443-3055.
