The Memory Hub
To mark Alzheimer's Awareness Month, Seattle Channel's CityStream visited Dr. Thomas Grabowski at the Memory Hub to shine a light on all the resources and education offered at this community center for people living with memory loss and their family members. Watch!
In 2021, the UW Memory and Brain Wellness Center (MBWC) is proud to launch a new initiative on Seattle’s First Hill: The Memory Hub. Bringing together people, programs and partners, the Memory Hub operates as a vibrant dementia-focused programs and events venue, collaborative workspace and training center.

The Memory Hub welcomed the first group of front desk volunteers this fall! We currently have 4 active front desk volunteers, with a 5th joining soon. The front desk volunteers are the first contact that visitors have upon entering the community center. Each volunteer brings a commitment to the Memory Hub mission, a compassionate and helpful spirit, and respect and kindness for folks living with memory loss and their caregivers. Join us in welcoming Deborah, Teresa, Julie, and Tanya!
My role as the Operations Lead entails managing daily operations for the Memory Hub community ensuring a welcoming vibrant space, with systems fully functioning and always improving so that program, services and events meet their objectives to educate, engage, support and celebrate.
Emily Meeks will work to increase awareness of dementia across Washington State as program manager for Dementia Friends at the Memory Hub.

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!
