A membership no one expects but all are grateful to have
If you have been recently diagnosed with early stage Alzheimer’s disease or a related disorder, you are not alone – there is a place for you! Our state-of-the-art Memory Technology Center offers a new approach to strengthening “brain skills” using the latest memory enhancement techniques. Our programming targets eight cognitive domains: short term memory, language, perceptual skills, attention, constructive abilities, orientation, problem solving, and functional abilities. Our members participate in a variety of programs in a club-like setting where one can cultivate lasting friendships, engage in personal growth, and avoid the social isolation that often accompanies an early diagnosis.
