This is a multi-week art series workshop for people living with dementia and their caregivers is offered in an encouraging and relaxing environment and by a professional art teacher. The failure-free environment in our art program can help the participants to learn, experiment, and explore creativity with a variety of art projects and mediums.

The Boomers Club is a weekly program that focuses on wellness for the people with Early Onset Dementias (under age 65) and their care partners. The idea is to create informal connections among people who are on the same journey. The program is flexible and can be modified based on the needs and interests of the group participants.

Minds in Motion® is a program that combines physical activity as well as mental and social stimulation for individuals living with early to mid-stage Alzheimer’s disease or other dementias and their caregivers.
