Minds in Motion – (VIRTUAL)

2023-01-29T20:16:28-05:00

Minds in Motion® is an evidence-based program that includes physical activity, socialization, and mentally stimulating activities for people living with dementia and their care partners to participate in together. Alzheimer Society Toronto is currently recruiting participants to join our pilot project to learn about the impacts of Minds in Motion® offered virtually (on the computer).

This program runs once a week for 8 weeks on Zoom. 

Tuesdays from 1:30 PM – 3:00 PM from August 1st – September 19th
August 1, 8, 15, 22,29, September 5, 12, 19

This is a great environment to establish new friendships with others who are living with similar experiences. Combining physical, mental, and social stimulation improves brain health and may slow the disease progression.

Participants will be guided through a short health questionnaire as a condition of participation.
