For those living with dementia, Sunday morning services may become too stressful, but here in the Memory Café, people can remain tied to the community of the church in a way that is safe, engaging, and fun!
Memory Café provides people an opportunity to socialize with others-engaging their minds and enjoying time in community within an environment that doesn’t condescend. Dementia is never mentioned at Memory Café. This is a place where all can be comfortable and be themselves without worrying about embarrassment or misunderstandings. Volunteers, guests, friends and family members, all participate equally with no one singled out.
Memory Café will resume in-person meetings once COVID-19 numbers are safe for the Tulsa area. We want to provide a relaxed environment where our guests and our speakers are comfortable gathering together.
For now, join us “virtually” via our monthly newsletter which is packed with fun information and video links. To be added to the distribution list, email Mary.
First Baptist participates in Dementia Friendly Tulsa, part of the Dementia Friendly America initiative. If you need assistance, our ushers are here to help. Family restrooms are located: in the Cincinnati room; on the lower level near the fellowship hall; and behind the grand staircase in the Children's Building lobby. A quiet room can be found in the Detroit corridor in the ivorie room (between the café and the worship center).
