No TV? No internet? How about listening to the radio. We’ll travel back in time to listen to some favorites, including Jack Benny, “Gunsmoke,” “Dragnet,” “Our Miss Brooks,” “An Evening with Groucho,” “Sherlock Holmes” and “Life of Riley,” to name a few. We’ll try our talent and become the characters for our own mini-radio program.

Often persons living with Alzheimer’s disease become isolated. Going out to see friends or socializing becomes daunting. But since personal interaction is a healthy way to keep the disease at bay, the Alzheimer’s Association provides Memory Cafés to offer a solution.

Persons with early to mid-stage Alzheimer’s disease or other types of dementia, their caregivers and family members are invited to monthly Memory Cafés held the fourth Thursday of the month in the Mid-States meeting room. The programs are free; no registration required.

The relaxed gatherings are a time to share stories, laugh and share concerns without feeling embarrassed or misunderstood with others experiencing similar life changes. Each month features a new theme.

Memory Cafés are sponsored by the Alzheimer’s Association; Legacies: Family and Organizational Historians; and the Fond du Lac Public Library. For more information about Memory Cafés or Alzheimer's disease, contact the Alzheimer’s Association 24/7 Helpline at (800) 272-3900.
