Friendship Club Offers Memory Workshops for Seniors

Submitted by Sharron Colter

A series of Memory and Aging Workshops are being offered at the Friendship Club in Lion’s Head, sponsored by the Friendship Club and Alzheimer’s Association,
The Memory and Aging Program is aimed at people of retirement age and older who are interested in learning about memory changes that normally occur with age and strategies to improve their everyday memory performance.
The Memory and Aging Program consists of three, three-hour sessions and addresses questions such as:

  1. What kinds of memory changes should I expect as I grow older?
  2. Which changes are normal and which ones are not?
  3. If I forget, is something wrong with my brain?
  4. Can I improve my memory?
    The program is facilitated by Sandra Hong of the Alzheimer Society of Grey-Bruce. The only cost for participants is $20.00 for the personal workbook.
    Workshop dates are May 29, June 19 and June 26, 2019 from 1:00 p.m. to 4:00 p.m. at the Friendship Club in Lion’s Head (6 Tackaberry Street, beside the arena).
    At least 10 registrations are needed to run the workshops and there is an upper limit of 20 registrants. Registration is by phone only — call 519-376-7230 or 1-800-265-9013 by May 22nd.
