The Museum of Work & Culture continues its Living Memories Mondays series on Monday, February 24 at 1pm with a free program for individuals with memory loss and their caretakers.
February’s program will feature a presentation on touchstones of Rhode Island memories, featuring images of parks, theaters, stores and more that catalyze shared fond thoughts for all Rhode Islanders. This presentation will be led by Museum staff who will encourage guests to reminisce about those community spaces, or share reflections on similar sites from their past. These events are free and made possible with the generous support of CVS Health Charity Classic. Registration is requested by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org or calling (401) 769-9675.
This series is a part of Rhode Island’s Memory Cafe Network, whose mission is to support Rhode Islanders touched by memory loss or cognitive impairment with a community-based support network rooted in camaraderie, fellowship, and comfort.
The Museum also offers a Memory Map developed in collaboration with the Memory & Aging Program at Butler Hospital. This new tool helps caretakers navigate the Museum and provides specially developed questions to help prompt conversations. These materials are available at the Museum’s front desk, as well as on the Rhode Island Historical Society’s website.
