UIndy presents Memory Cafés to support Dementia Friends Indiana
Over the past month the University of Indianapolis Department of Music and the Center for Aging & Community have partnered with the Dementia Friends Indiana movement led locally by CICOA Aging & In-Home Solutions to put on a series of Memory Cafes at Books & Brews-South Indy. An outreach of the Dementia Friends Indiana movement led locally by CICOA, Memory Cafés are welcoming gatherings for individuals with Alzheimer’s or dementia and their family members or caregivers to socialize and listen to music.
To comply with COVID-19 guidelines, concerts put on by the UIndy Dept. of Music were held outside and people were allowed to park their cars and bring lawn chairs to enjoy a socially distanced event.
The last concert of the series is Thursday, Oct. 29 from 2:00-3:15 p.m.
Books & Brews-South Indy is also displaying a new mural created by UIndy Studio Art senior Leah Diekhoff. Make sure you check it out!
