"We are the new faces of Alzheimer's, and we're choosing to make a difference." - Dick, living with Alzheimer's
If you have Alzheimer’s disease or a related dementia, it’s important to understand that your life is not over. Living with Alzheimer’s does mean dealing with some life changes sooner than you may have anticipated. However, you can live a meaningful and productive life by taking care of your physical and emotional health, by engaging in activities you enjoy, and by spending time with family and friends.
Here you’ll find a variety of programs and resources for people living with mild cognitive impairment (MCI) or early dementia. As you prepare for the future and connect with your community, we hope you will find the inspiration to make your years ahead the best that they can be.
Living Well: A Holistic Program for People with Early Memory Loss
Living Well is an exciting program for those who have early memory loss and their care partners. If you are a person with early memory loss, join us for an engaging program that will provide comprehensive health, fitness, education, creative arts, and community outings. Participants will have the opportunity to set individual goals and choose from a variety of activities. Research and experts agree that it is important to be socially, physically, and cognitively active to reduce the impact of symptoms and improve daily life. This program combines each of these elements in a fun program led by experts in the field.
Each series is 12 weeks long and programming takes place at the St. Paul JCC. Cost is $50 per week and fee adjustments are available based on income level. A 3-month membership to the JCC for participants and their care partners is included.
The next series is scheduled for October 3 – December 12, 2013. For more information and to register, call Susan Ryan 651-280-2290 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
