Activities and fun for seniors living with dementia and their care partners

We provide a variety of opportunities for people with dementia and their care partners to be socially active, enjoy support from others, learn about this stage of life, and improve their overall quality of life. We offer monthly Memory Cafés and weekly Memory Walks. All sessions are a great opportunity to socialize in safe settings, make new friends, and enjoy activities that are free of charge. See our Dementia Services page for information on sessions in Art and Music.

Please join us for:

  • Memory Walks conducted on Thursdays in four week sessions in partnership with the Alzheimer’s Association (Registration Required)
  • Memory Cafés in partnership with Deer Ridge Memory Care at various locations in Puyallup, the third Wednesday of each month at 10:30 a.m.  (Registration is NOT required, but call or email 24 hours in advance to find out the location of the next Memory Café.)

Memory Walks

Weekly Memory Walks provide an opportunity to breathe fresh air, get some exercise and socialize with others in the early stages of dementia and their care partners. Our weekly walk provides a safe, fun public space for participants.

Memory Walks are conducted in four-week sessions. Registration is necessary as each session is held at different locations.

For more information on our Memory Walks, call 253-722-5682 or email 

Pre-registration with the Alzheimer’s Association Early Stage Memory Loss (ESML) Director is required. To pre-register, please call the ESML Program Director at the Alzheimer’s Association at 206-529-3868. For information about the Zoo Walk please call at 253-722-5682 or email

Memory Cafés

A Memory Café is a monthly gathering for those at any stage of dementia and their friends, family and caregivers. We are partnering with Deer Ridge Memory Care, and will meet at various locations at 10:30 a.m. on the third Wednesday of every month. 

Memory Cafés provide a valuable social outlet for those with dementia. They are a positive safe space where you can meet others in similar situations. We laugh, tell stories and share tips for caring for our loved ones. We work hard to make sure everyone feels welcome and part of our group. Many friendships have formed from our Memory Cafés and Memory Walks.

For more information about where the next Memory Café will be meeting, call 253-722-5682 or email at least 24 hours in advance.
