We’re Thrilled to Offer a Memory Café for Our Neighbors

After three years of successful testing of the wheelchair-accessible MargFMac Front Garden Loop (thanks to our friends with disabilities from the NE-ARC Topsfield and Burlington Houses!), Karl and I are happy to share our garden once-a-month (from April through October), free-of-charge, with our North of Boston neighbors experiencing memory changes and their care-partners.

> Please visit our new Memory Café web page that explains the offering, dates, and RSVP information.

Despite the fact we are simply a private home (without a wheelchair-accessible bathroom – last quoted to us at a cost we are currently unable to afford, and without parking greater than ten cars/vans), we are a couple who has survived our own dementia-care story, and we’re passionate about making a difference for people who are now living with the long-term effects of dementia-care.

We are doing what we can, with what we have, right now (quoted by Theodore Roosevelt in his autobiography):
