Health

Memory Café

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.

Energy Assistance Program

The Energy Assistance Program provides assistance for heating costs, electric costs, and energy crisis situations for qualified Milwaukee County residents. Call 414-270-4653 for eligibility.

Home Renovation Assistance

Revitalize Milwaukee is a nonprofit organization in which skilled and unskilled volunteers repair homes for low-income elderly and/or disabled homeowners who are unable to repair or afford the work themselves.

Repairs are completed safely and in compliance with current building code guidelines. For income guidelines and to apply for the program visit the website or call 414-312-7531.
