Memory Joggers

Welcome to My Friend’s Place

My Friend’s Place is a social activity program for people coping with memory loss, dementia or who are socially isolated. It is our mission to provide adults a safe, supportive and friendly environment that offers life-enriching social and recreational activities along with respite for their caregivers.

What We Offer Caregivers

“A Life”
A break to do something nice for yourself, knowing your loved one is in a safe, warm and caring place:

  • Do your weekly shopping
  • See a friend and have lunch
  • Take a nap

Some time away from the constant care and responsibility of a frail or confused older family member

Support and education to help you deal with the changes in your life and the life of the one you care for

Assistance so that you can continue to care for your loved one
