Combat Memory Loss with Us

Tuesday, October 7th, 2014

Memory loss has become a common trial for seniors. According to the Alzheimer’s Association some of the challenges that victims face include impairments in language, focus, judgment and visual perception. But it’s important to remember that there are ways to combat one of the biggest threats facing our Senior Citizen community.

Join us at Little House every Monday from 10am – 12pm for “Minds in Motion,” the Peninsula Volunteers early memory loss wellness program – designed for people experiencing changes in memory, or who may have a diagnosis of mild cognitive impairment. It’s an important opportunity to learn both the scientific and practical basis for the class and to try out mental exercises that promote abstract thinking and critical problem solving skills.
