Pittsfield: BFAIR awarded grant to host Memory Cafe


Berkshire Family & Individual Resources has been awarded a grant from the Massachusetts Department of Developmental Disabilities to host a Memory Cafe.

The Berkshire Memory Cafe offers a casual, cafe-like setting for people living with memory issues and their caregivers, designed to spend less time focusing on the memory issues and more time socializing.

The Cafe will offer coffee, tea and refreshments, along with an activity and support.

The first Berkshire Memory Cafe will be held from 9 to 11 a.m. Thursday, June 16, at the St. Joseph Parish Center, 414 North St. Parking is available behind the church on North Pearl Street and the entrance is there as well.

For more information, contact Ethel Altiery at 413-664-9382, ext. 28, or visit www.bfair.org.
