Mid-Columbia Meals on Wheels offers free bi-monthly breakfasts to dementia patients

RICHLAND, Wash. - Mid-Columbia Meals on Wheels has just launched a new program with the goal of helping those with dementia feel like they can enjoy a meal out in the community.

The Moneta Project Memory Cafe will be held on the 2nd and 4th Wednesdays of each month - a complimentary breakfast for individuals living with dementia along with their caregivers and loved ones. The meals are funded by the Kadlec Foundation and will be held bi-monthly at the Meals on Wheels Cafe at 1834 Fowler Street in Richland. 

"The goal with this program is for those individuals to be able to come and relax and enjoy each other's company and do a meal out, in a place where dementia is the norm instead of the exception, in a place without stigma," said Sarah McDonald, program support coordinator at Meals on Wheels.

Guests can come to the cafe anytime between 8 a.m. and 10 a.m. The next April breakfast is scheduled for April 24th and May breakfasts will be May 8th and May 22nd.

Although participants are not required to RSVP, reservations are encouraged. For more information or to RSVP, contact Sarah McDonald at (509) 735-1911 or smcdonald@seniorliferesources.org.
