Exciting changes for our cafes beginning in April . . .
We have some exciting news about our cafes! Beginning in April, we will have two new cafes – one in McLean (2nd Wednesday) and the other in Alexandria (3rd Monday). Both will be from 11:00 am to 1:00 pm as our new hosts have generously offered to provide us with a light lunch. We will be reaching out to both communities to get the word out but if you would like to help us, please send me an email and I can send you the flyers.
We were also asked if we could change the date of our Cafe Fairfax because our host, Insight Memory Care Center, is expanding their Reconnections program. This is exciting news for Insight! The end result is that beginning in April we have new days and times for our established cafes in Fairfax (3rd Wednesday, 10:00 am to 12 noon) and Ashburn (4th Wednesday, 11:00 am to 1:00 pm). You may have noticed that Cafe Ashburn also has a new time, as it will also include a light lunch. We are very fortunate to have such generous hosts at all our cafes!
I’ll be doing my best to keep you updated with our new schedule through our newsletters and on our website, trying to keep our new schedule easy to follow.
If you haven’t been to our cafes, they are an informal, social alternative to support groups. All those touched by Parkinson’s, including caregivers, families and friends, are welcome. While Parkinson’s is one thing that we have in common, it is definitely not the only thing. We all have so much more to share. To get the conversation started we offer programs that are fun and educational, with the hope they will inspire people to make the most of their lives with Parkinson’s.
