Memory Care is a weekly three-hour program for both individuals experiencing memory loss and for their partner, loved one, or professional caregiver. The program teaches memory techniques as well as strategies to lower stress and stimulate the mind and the body, while providing support for caregivers. This innovative approach to memory loss assists middle-aged people with memory challenges and their loved ones who care for them.
First Hour: Memory Training
Teaches easy-to-learn practical techniques for enhancing memory performance.
Second Hour: Mind-Body Connection
Participants learn and practice alternative methods like yoga, tai chi, art and music therapy to help stimulate the mind and body. Mindfulness exercises lower stress levels, enhance creativity, and help participants learn new strategies for living better longer.
Third Hour: Social/Support Group
Loved ones, family members, and caregivers participate in a caregiver support group while participants practice their social skills during group discussions of past activities and experiences.
This is a weekly 3-hour program for both caregivers and people experiencing memory loss. The program is ideal for people with mild cognitive impairment, early stages Alzheimer's disease and other forms of dementia, and their loved one/caregiver.
