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.
Mind Works- Turner Senior Resource Center Wednesdays 10am-12pm
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.
Elderberry Club- Turner Senior Resource Center Tuesdays 10:30am-3:00pm
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.
