LaBey, who grew up in Roseville, brought the first U.K. Memory Café to the U.S., which is in Roseville.
"Caring for someone with Alzheimer's can be a physically, emotionally and financially challenging experience, making access to reliable information about various stages of the disease all the more important," Dr. Kevin Soden, a Sharecare editorial advisory board member, said in a press statement from Sharecare. "Recognizing the most influential and credible individuals in this field during November's Alzheimer's Disease Awareness Month serves as a powerful opportunity for us to support not only those diagnosed with the disease but also their loved ones and caregivers."
Locally, J. Arthur’s Memory Café, 2441 Rice St., Roseville; "offers a safe, friendly and supportive environment for people with early memory loss and their caregivers to gather and build new friendships and a sense of community," La Bey told Roseville Patch. That sense of community is something that is so often lost when Alzheimer's or dementia strikes a person, La Bey said.
The Memory Cafe gatherings are held on the second and fourth Wednesdays of the month from 1 to 3 p.m. The sessions are free.
La Bey said that J. Arthur’s Memory Café is collaboration with ACR Home Healthcare Group, Arthurs White Pines, The Alzheimer’s Research Center and Health Partners Center for Dementia and Alzheimer’s Care. Here is the link to: J. Arthur’s Coffee Shop.
In a press statment, Sharecare said to be included in the SharecareNow 10 - Alzheimer's Disease list, "individuals must have demonstrated a consistent impact on Alzheimer's-specific conversations online over the past year. Top influencers have an active online presence across multiple interactive channels -- including Twitter, Facebook, video and blogs -- and address a wide range of Alzheimer's topics, including symptoms, treatment and care. Influence is measured and quantified through a proprietary algorithm based on more than 70 individual metrics, including Alzheimer's disease relevance, syndication, presence and reach."
