Memory Cafés are places where persons with Alzheimer's or dementia can go with their care partners to socialize and have fun with other people going through similar challenges. Cafés provide a time where you do not need to focus on the diagnosis and have a great time connecting with each other as a family or to create new friends. Tosa Bowl and Bun (7212 W. North Ave) is a Memory Café site in Wauwatosa.
