Our Programs

Gentle Yoga with Kathy
Kathy Alvarez, Alzheimer's Association Volunteer Extraordinaire, certified yoga instructor and aging yoga specialist, and Alzheimer's caregiver, leads us virtually in an hour long class of gentle chair yoga with guided meditation.  Alzheimer's experts recommend 30 minutes of exercise per day to reduce risk of dementia and to increase wellness and quality of life for those living with dementia.

Musing at The High
Thanks to a long standing partnership with The High Museum in Atlanta, we are able to bring this exciting art discussion program right to your home!  During "Musing at The High", you will view various works of art with the group and discuss the art, the artists as well as developments in history that influenced culture at the time the art was produced.  Whether you are already an art lover or new to the subject and have the desire to join others in an interesting program, we know you will enjoy "Musing" with us.

Carpe Diem Monthly Luncheon
A monthly luncheon held in person at various restaurants around the Metro Atlanta area.  Persons with a diagnosis and their care partners meet with others to socialize, enjoy lunch and each other's company.  Join us and find out why this is everyone's favorite lunch date!
