Hosted by the Sanford Center for Aging and Dementia Friendly Nevada, a sub group of the Dementia Friendly America movement, Open Door Cafés are hosted to provide an inclusive and comfortable gathering place for people living with dementia and their loved ones to gather and spend time in a judgement-free space with others who are sharing similar experiences. The Open Door Cafés will provide and encourage opportunities to relax, have fun, socialize, and participate in a welcoming environment where people living with dementia can share their many strengths and foster new friendships.

The Open Door Cafés events will be held on the third Thursday of every month from 2 to 3:30 p.m. at the Great Basin Community Food Co-Op, 240 Court Street in, Reno. Open Door Cafés are free to the public and refreshments will be provided.

Dementia Friendly America's mission is to more effectively support and serve those across the U.S. who are living with dementia and their family and friend care partners. The Dementia Friendly Nevada group is supported by the University of Nevada, Reno School of Community Health Sciences, Sanford Center for Aging, and the Alzheimer's Association.
