Dementia Care Programs

Because coping with memory loss and dementia are challenging

VMRC has been providing specialized memory loss programs and services to residents in need since 1987. Because these types of disorders are particularly challenging to families and caregivers, we established an ongoing series of educational programs open to the public.

Our next Memory C.A.R.E. outreach is a free Lunch and Learn series from the PBS documentary "Alzheimer's - Every Minute Counts."

The Emotional Toll of Alzheimer's
November 1, 2017  Noon-1 p.m.

The Personal Reality - A Caregiver's Story

Tips to Encourage Brain Health
November 15, 2017  Noon-1 p.m.

Sessions are at Park View Mennonite Church, 1600 College Avenue, and include lunch. Reservations are REQUIRED by one week prior to the program date.

The programs will include a 15-minute video with discussion and questions/answers facilitated by Valda Garber Weider, R.N., coordinator of VMRC's Memory C.A.R.E.
