Join us for this half-hour online activity session designed to engage people who are living at home with dementia. Each session will feature a guest presenter who will guide participants through fun and engaging activities they can do from home.

These activities will include things like arts, brain games, music therapy, movement, sing-a-longs, with opportunities for social interaction

Having a routine can be a major benefit for those with dementia, so we have chosen to offer this program five days a week! Now offering an afternoon time slot! Special thanks to the United Way Area Agency on Aging grant funding for making this possible.
