The Thomaston Memory Cafe today was a blast. Two weeks ago when we started, we had planned to meet for one and half hours. There was so much energy and participation today that we stayed for two hours. I think all of us walked away feeling better than we did when we got there.
There are so many opportunities and things that can be done in a Memory Cafe. We deal with difficult issues that lie before us, but we do not stay on those topics. Today, we talked about hospice care and when is it time to call hospice. Each person had the opportunity to share whatever they wanted to share. We played a game together. The important thing that came out of the cafe today was that we were able to share, tear-up, and have engaging conversations.
