Every year The Memory Center, Virginia Beach participates in the Beach Bag program to help feed local children during the holidays during the school break. For many children, the school cafeteria is where most of their meals are eaten. During holiday and summer breaks they may not have enough to eat at home.
You can help The Memory Center fill Beach Bags and feed a child in Virginia Beach. Click the flyer below for more details.
If you care for a friend or family member with Alzheimer’s or other form of dementia, you know unique communication challenges can arise.
Communication is more than just talking and listening – it’s also about sending and receiving messages through
attitude, tone of voice, facial expressions and body language. As people with Alzheimer’s disease and other dementias progress in their journey and the ability to use words is lost, families need new ways to connect. Join us to explore how communication takes place when someone has Alzheimer’s, learn to decode the verbal and behavioral messages delivered by someone with dementia, and identify strategies to help you connect and communicate at each stage of the disease.
Join The Memory Center, Virginia Beach on Wednesday, August 2nd for lunch.

Spring Break is almost here for many Virginia Beach area schools which means an entire week off. But not everyone looks forward to these extended breaks. In fact, there are many students in our area who rely on school meals and may not get enough to eat on the weekends or during school breaks.
This is why The Memory Center, Virginia Beach supports the “Beach Bags for Kids” program to help our local community and provide meals for kids who need them.
The Memory Center invites you to help us fill as many Beach Bags for Kids as possible by donating non-perishable food items. Suggestions include:
You can drop off donations at The Memory Center, Virginia Beach anytime during our food drive March 27 – April 6, 2017. Donation boxes will be set up in the lobby, just drop by anytime between 9am-5pm any day of the week. After April 6th The Memory Center staff and residents will then assemble and deliver all the Beach Bags to schools in our local community.
Thank you in advance for your participation and support, we look forward to sharing your donations with the kids in the Virginia Beach area.
