Memory Matters - Virtual Edition

The purpose of this program is to engage individuals with ADRD (Alzheimer’s disease-related dementias) in daily living and socialization activities lead by Morgan’s Wonderland. Caregivers of these individuals will engage in a series of educational sessions presented by the Alzheimer’s Association designed to educate the caregivers in topics related to the disease, discuss issues commonly encountered in caregiving, and how to address those. Each session will offer stress management techniques for all participants. Caregivers may attend as many sessions as they would like. This free program will be offered through the Zoom virtual platform.
