Brain Wave Café

One of the most important things that you can do to promote brain health and live well despite cognitive change is to stay socially connected and active. It is also important to have a supportive network of family, friends, and service providers to draw upon when needed.

Brain Wave Cafe logo

The Brain Wave Café provides an opportunity for individuals concerned about cognitive change and dementia to learn about brain health and dementia, to ask questions, and to become familiar with community resources and supports. These cafés offer an informal place for people to meet up on a regular basis for a coffee, get information, share experiences and participate in 'healthy brain' activities within their local communities. Individuals living with cognitive change or dementia, care partners, family and friends are all welcome!
