Café for Care Partners: Coffee & ARTZ Cards
Time & Location
About The Event
A Café especially for care partners this February:
Coffee & ARTZ Cards:
"Sometimes it’s just about knowing that someone else has been down the path you’re on… or is following in your footsteps…"
Join us for a cup of coffee and some treats and to share your perspective on next steps for ARTZ Cards, an ARTZ Philadelphia project that's by and for our community. This is a follow up Café to our program in November. ARTZ Cards is live and we're excited to meet with you and talk about how we can continue to make it yours! More language about the project, below:
What is the greatest gift you could give to a fellow traveler through the ups and downs of living with dementia… in just a few words? Or by asking a simple question?
Will you help us? If you are living with dementia; or if you love or care for someone living with Alzheimer’s Disease or any other type of dementia, please bring your insights to a new ARTZ Philadelphia project, made by and for our community.
It’s called “ARTZ Cards.” With your help, we will produce decks of cards that can support, comfort, challenge and inspire people living with dementia and the people they love. How? Through words and images shared by fellow journeyers: brief words of encouragement, thought-provoking questions, and lessons learned. And beautiful images created by participants in our programs, whose creativity is an inspiration in itself.
Cafés for Care Partners are an opportunity to get together informally outside the context of a support group. The cafes are definitely supportive-- but they're also periods of respite, a chance to kick back, go someplace new with new and old friends, and share a cup of coffee or glass of wine.
