Memory Café Directory / Café Connect is a valuable resource available at no cost to coordinators located anywhere. This resource enables coordinators to list their Memory Cafés in a centralized location where community members living with dementia and family caregivers can search in their city, state, and country. Established by Dave Wiederrich, this website has united coordinators and communities with an easy to navigate hub for Memory Café information and support. A supplement called Café Connect was created after the need for a virtual Memory Café directory arose following the COVID-19 pandemic and subsequent rise in virtual opportunities.
Because the WellMed Charitable Foundation is dedicated to seniors and family members who care for those who cannot care for themselves, it has devoted much energy and funding to the development of caregiver supports. With the assistance of world class experts in the field of caregiving, these programs are leading the country in innovative ideas to take supportive services to the caregiver, especially when the caregiver cannot leave their loved one alone. For information on the caregiver programs sponsored by the WellMed Charitable Foundation, see Caregiver SOS supports.
