Early Memory Loss Program
Meeting of Minds is a guided group experience for those with early stages of dementia or cognitive impairment. The program offered at the Newark Senior Center is an active, social program for adults who are in the early stages of dementia, Alzheimer’s or other cognitive impairments. Through diverse social, mental, creative and physical activities, participants gain improved self-esteem, socialization, and a sense of belonging. Caregivers receive some respite time, knowing that their loved ones are in a positive and safe environment.
Meeting of Minds is run Monday – Fridays : 10:00am – 2:00pm. Cost of the program is $30 per day, which includes transportation (on NSC bus if needed), lunch, and materials. Caregivers & members love the program. Check out what they have to say below!
