The Silver Club Memory Programs Elderberry group is highlighted in the ‘Innovations in Alzheimer’s Care 2021’ guide, distributed by Maude’s Awards. Elderberry was established in 2011 as the first program of its kind in Michigan designed exclusively for women with memory loss. The members engage in the community in numerous ways, such as participating in community service (volunteering at a local food pantry), going on cultural outings (the local art museum), and engaging in inter-generational activities with students. During COVID-19, the facilitators shifted the group to Zoom to continue two hours per week of virtual support and activities. The members uplift other women who may be isolated and living with memory loss. The group meets Tuesdays at the Turner Senior Resource Center.
Congratulations, Silver Club!
