Memory Land and Alzheimer’s Education

These events will be held Thursday, June 9th, at 2:00pm, meeting at the Parkwood Heights Independent Living Center in Macedon.

Alzheimer’s Education: Healthy Habits  – This program  is designed to provide current research and practical information on ways to age well. The program begins with an overview of how humans age and how the brain works. The workshop is organized into four areas: cognitive activity, physical health and exercise, diet and nutrition, and social engagement. Take a holistic approach to wellness as you age. 

Memory Lane – Participants will sing songs, color and talk about days of yore. Nostalgic activity and conversation is a wonderful way for those with dementia to socialize and it may unlock neural pathways leading to more communication.
