Franklin Senior Center Hosting Memory Cafes As Part Of Dementia Friendly Franklin Program
  

The Franklin Senior Center has received an $11,712 grant award from the MetroWest Health Foundation to make the city of Franklin a Dementia Friendly Community. A component of this process includes providing a monthly Memory Café at the Franklin Senior Center that offers regularly scheduled social events for those living with dementia and their care partners, to encourage social interaction in a welcoming and accepting atmosphere. Our next Memory Café is scheduled for Monday, September 24th, at 3:00 PM. This month’s presentation will offer information and a hands-on meeting with “Ernie” The Therapy Dog. Therapy dogs can be a great source of comfort and companionship for individuals struggling with memory impairment or isolation. For information, please call the Senior Center at 508 520-4945. The Franklin Council on Aging was established in 1971 to address the needs of elderly residents. For more information about the Franklin Senior Center, visit  http://www.franklinma.gov/franklin-senior-center-and-council-aging
