We will be hosting live, virtual memory café’s. These social gatherings are only for those with dementia. A mentor will always be in attendance. If you wish to talk about your symptoms, that’s fine, or if you simply want to talk about the weather, that’s fine as well.
We want to help you stay socially connected by providing you with an hour or so with real people that are walking in the same shoes that you are.
We are currently running four cafe's a week throughout several different times zones.
At Dementia Mentors we have become extremely international.
This is a great list of website and other infomation for anyone living with dementia, along with their caregivers.
Also collected on this page is some great blogs written by those living daily with the symptoms of dementia.
I encourage you to read through them and learn first hand about dementia related diseases.
Through this website you will be able to converse one-on-one with a dementia mentor (Remember, all mentors are living with the symptoms of dementia themselves).
This will be accomplished via video chat.
By using a computer equipped with a webcam and mic, you will be able to do this from the privacy and comfort of your own home. The tool we are using is as simple as the clicking on a link.This is a “safe place.” The sessions are strictly confidential. We want everyone to be comfortable asking their mentor anything!
All writings on this page have been written by those living with dementia.

Our new website is specifically designed to help anyone living with dementia. In fact, even our mentors have been diagnosed with some kind of a dementia related disease. Consequently, they understand the trials and tribulations that you, with dementia are going through.
We have over 100 short and empowering videos, created by our mentors, instructing how to rule your disease, and are constantly adding new videos.
These videos are some of the best educational tools out there when it comes to learning about dementia.
Through these short (average length 3 minutes) videos, you will learn from those that are living with the symptoms of dementia related diseases. I promise you, these folks will open your eyes and help you understand what dementia truly is.
