The Texas Memory Cafe Network (TMCN) is a group of Memory Cafe coordinators, community partners, and families living with dementia who work together to improve the quality and quantity of Memory Cafes in Texas. The TMCN meets quarterly to share lessons learned, workshop ideas and challenges, and produce resources to support Memory Cafe coordinators to start and sustain high-quality social engagement opportunities for families living with dementia.
In 2020, the TMCN collaborated for a study to learn about the experiences of Memory Cafe attendees and their perspectives about how Memory Cafes may have impacted their social connections during COVID-19. Members of the TMCN worked together to develop a toolkit for coordinators based on what they learned.
