Daytime Memory Care
& Caregiver Respite
Old Friends Club brings affordable active social clubs for people living with dementia in Western Washington.
No matter where you are in your journey with dementia, Old Friends Club can help. We are here for the family caregiver, too. Families call the Club “Life-Changing” for the respite and support they gain while their loved ones are safe for the day, having fun, making friends, receiving individual attention, and regaining a sense of independence and relevance.
Club Updates + Virtual Events
All clubs are currently closed due to Covid-19. We are still here to answer your questions and offer support. We are also working to make sure the Clubs can start again once it's safe to meet. Until then, be well and know you aren't forgotten.
