The Alzheimer’s Association Washington State Chapter hosts a new program for individuals living with memory loss, called Staying Connected.

The free health promotion and social support program is on Monday afternoons beginning June 4 at the Auburn Senior Activity Center, 808 Ninth St. SE.

Studies have shown that being socially active and keeping the mind engaged benefit a person’s mood and memory. In Staying Connected, participants learn and collaborate on methods for coping with memory loss, communication and staying engaged in social and pleasant activities. Participants who complete the program are empowered with new information, strategies for success and a stronger support network.

Staying Connected consists of four weekly, 90-minute, facilitated discussion sessions and is geared specifically toward individuals with memory loss and a companion or support person. Pre-registration is required. Please contact Madison Moore at 206-529-3870 or mamoore@alz.org to register or for more information.
