Spotlight on KIRO radio: The Memory Hub is a new Seattle community center for people with dementia and Alzheimer’s

The Memory Hub started as a big dream. It was a dream to create a home for the support, education, and engagement programs that the UW Memory and Brain Wellness Center offers for people with memory loss and their families—a warm, welcoming, and non-clinical place, where someone with memory loss is a person, not a patient or research participant. Over time, the dream expanded to involve a vibrant group of partner organizations, and a vision to spread dementia-friendly programs from Seattle across the state!
Come experience the Memory Hub: A place for dementia-friendly community, collaboration, and impact! Operated by the UW Memory and Brain Wellness Center, on the campus of founding partner the Frye Art Museum, this dynamic new space offers a variety of programs and resources for people with memory loss, their families, and all who support a dementia-friendly community.
