Best 4 Memory Cafe Startup Guides!

Visit and see our Startup Guide “Round-up.” We assembled our four favorite resources for you. Each one provides different perspectives, allowing you to apply those techniques right for you.

As we compile additional resources, our best advice is to take a look at the information currently collected, and check back often to see new resources we’ve found.

You can always contact one of the many Memory Cafes listed in the Memory Cafe Directory to ask for their views as well. Virtually every Cafe has a phone and/or an email contact. Developing a relationship with someone who can provide support as a Mentor is a great way to start – and evolve.

If you get some excellent advice, we’d love to have you share it with us! We’ll add it to the resource list to help others along the path you’re traveling.

Start by getting some basics from our Memory Cafe Startup Guide, but be sure to check back with us to see what else we’ve uncovered for you!
