Sunshine Memory Café

is a place where you can go to socialize and have fun with other people who have worries about their memory. At a memory café, people can relax and just be themselves. They can enjoy activities, share stories and socialize with others, knowing that no one judges them and all who are there are going through almost the same things that they go through every day. We welcome individuals with Mild Cognitive Impairment, Alzheimer’s, or other forms of memory loss or dementia, and their care partners. We enjoy games, crafts, music, art, interesting speakers, and “field trips” – Whatever is of interest to the group. We will just enjoy each other’s company. And it’s FREE!

We meet every Tuesday afternoon

1:00 to 2:30 pm

at the United Methodist Church 129 S. High Street West Chester

Free Parking Available

Who comes to this Café?

  • Individuals with memory loss due to MCI, Alzheimer’s, etc. and their care partners. Our group includes people of all ages, at any stage of their journey. We all enjoy ourselves!

Where is it held? Where should we go?

  • We meet (on most days) at the United Methodist Church, at 129 S. High Street in West Chester. Drive around to the back of the church and you will find free parking for Sunshine Memory Café. And someone will be at that door to greet you and show you where we are gathering.
  • Some days in good weather we meet at the East Goshen Park. And once a month or so we try to go on a “field trip” to a farm, museum, etc. So it’s best to contact us to find out our schedule.

The Methodist Church? But I’m not Methodist…

  • Sunshine Café is not a religious class or meeting. It’s also not a typical support group or respite care. It’s a social gathering open to anyone of any religion, race, nationality, etc.

What is the weekly fee?

  • There is no cost to come to the Sunshine Café!

Folks are saying….

“The Sunshine Memory Cafe is the “Best Kept Secret” in West Chester. We’ve met so many good friends, had lots of good times…” D.K.

“..We have had the wonderful privilege of attending Sunshine Memory Cafe for the past two years. It has truly been a Godsend and a relaxed and joyful gathering that we look forward to each week. For one hour and thirty minutes, my husband and I are treated so kindly… My husband sums it up this way: ‘There is a lightness and they make me smile and teach me how certain things can be helpful for me. They do it with a way that is laughter.’ ” D.T.

“SMC is a warm, welcoming and supportive group for us that is often the highlight of our week… There I laugh, smile and find support from others who know and understand the difficulties of taking care of a spouse with memory and cognitive problems.” D.N.
