The Memory Care group is a weekly, 3-hour program for people with early/mild dementia and their care partners. The Memory Care team and the participants/partners meet in a small group setting (5-10 pairs) at the Brain Health Center. The 3-hours include:

  • Hour 1
    Memory Training, which includes a whole-brain workout that focuses on improving short-term memory, in addition to providing exercises to stimulate executive functioning, language, visual spatial skills, and visual scanning (practical techniques for enhancing memory performance).
  • Hour 2
    Mind-Body Connection, which emphasizes fitness for the body and brain. This may include: stretching, FitBrain, yoga, or tai chi. In addition, there are art and music activities that are incorporated on select weeks.
  • Hour 3
    Team members and participants with memory loss meet in a social stimulation group with an emphasis on reminiscence and the opportunity to exercise long-term memory recall. Care partners meet with the team in their own group with the opportunity to support each other in the challenges of providing care for their loved ones with memory loss.
