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. Opening this spring, the Memory Hub will redefine life with memory loss!

Join us for our special Grand Opening celebration! 

2-4 p.m. Wednesday, March 23. Register here!

Enjoy live music, light refreshments, program demonstrations and ribbon cutting! Meet the collaborators including UW Memory and Brain Wellness Center, the Frye Art Museum, Alzheimer's Association, Washington State Chapter, Elderwise and Full Life Care. Be the first to tour Maude's Garden, our newly installed memory garden named for the late wife of our founding donor Richard Ferry. For an added bonus, step next door to view the Frye Art Museum’s free ‘Art on the Mind’ Creative Aging exhibit which showcases the artwork of people with dementia and care partners.

Currently we anticipate an open house style event following the King County COVID-19 guidelines at that time. Virtual option by Zoom is available for a portion of the event (speeches and ribbon-cutting, approx 15-30 min). We will send an update closer to the event about what guidelines are in place, any changes to event schedule or format, and the exact time to be online for the virtual option.

The Memory Hub is located at 1021 Columbia St, next door to the Frye Art Museum. Limited parking available thanks to Murano Senior Living; directions will be provided.
