Arthur’s Residential Care has sponsored and supported the Memory Cafe Concept from the beginning I brought it to the United States. The minute I suggested they become involved in launching one they jumped with both feet in the water and have never looked back. ACR not only graciously gave us space for meetings, but provided treats and additional facilitators as our one group expanded to three. They have been so progressive in staff dementia training and creating moments of joy for both their residents and their families; which I must admit brings a smile to my face and a warmth to my heat every time. I am so blessed to witness their work. Kudos Arthur’s Residential Care!
