Memory Café of the Red River Valley was founded by Deb Kaul and Beth Ustanko in 2017; it is a registered 501(c)3 nonprofit organization. As caregivers for their parents, Deb and Beth recognized the dire needs of families living with Alzheimer’s disease or related dementia. Those needs include, but are not limited to: quality dementia education and ongoing caregiver support, new friendships that are sustained throughout the course of the disease, meaningful community engagement/service opportunities, and frequent occasions to laugh and have fun in a safe, warm, welcoming environment with others who are traveling a similar journey. Memory Café is passionate about improving the quality of life for individuals living with memory loss and their loved ones while inspiring in them a sense of hope, joy and empowerment.
