Mild Memory Loss Programs
The activities offered in these programs range from education about living well with memory loss, learning coping strategies, topical discussions and exploring the expressive arts. Each of the mild memory loss programs provides members with an opportunity to meet with others and keep their mind and body active. All programs are held at the Turner Senior Resource Center.
This weekly educational group provides a safe, positive, strength-based environment which allows participants to learn, share, and engage together. Based on camaraderie, mental exercise, memory techniques, humor, and community engagement, this weekly group hopes to meet the unique needs of individuals who are newly diagnosed with cognitive change.
Coffeehouse Memory Loss Seminar
This education, support and discussion group meets once a week for those diagnosed with mild cognitive impairment, early Alzheimer’s disease and related dementias. Coffeehouse members share concerns and strategies for living well with memory loss. This program provides an uplifting and supportive peer community for those who are interested in a whole brain approach to living with cognitive change. Stress management, well-being and camaraderie are the cornerstones of this long-standing community group, which was established in 1999.
The first of its kind in Michigan, designed exclusively for women with memory loss! This is a group of women living with memory loss who come together each week for support, discussion, friendship, creative expression and education. The Elderberry Club is as lively and warm as the women involved. Since the programs’ inception in 2011, the group members have had two art shows, published collective poetry, and were featured on a UM-podcast series for their work. They want to be heard and uplift other women who may be isolated and living with memory loss.
