Minds in Motion
October 26, 2023 @ 2:30 pm - 4:30 pm EDT
The Parkside Centre is partnering again with the
Socie te Alzheimer Society Sudbury-Manitoulin to
present Minds in Motion® . The program unfolds
to laughter and chatter, with new friendships forming and stories being shared. This program is a
wonderful way for people with memory problems and their care partner to have fun together and
establish new friendships with others living the same experiences.
Minds in Motion® incorporates physical activity and mental stimulation. It's for people with early to
mid-stage signs of Alzheimer’s disease or other dementias and their care partners.
For the person with dementia:
Improved balance, mobility, flexibility, and alertness
Increased confidence, and comfort with their own circumstance
Mutual support from others facing similar experiences
For the care partners, it’s an opportunity to focus on their own health, and have fun with their partner.
Other benefits include:
Seeing the person they are caring for enjoying themselves
Mutual support and learning from other care partners
All participants can benefit from: sharpened mental functioning, sometimes lasting 2-3 days.
Increased sense of social participation
