Instructor: Lorraine Lee

Each week, discover a new horticultural therapy project to take home in this unique program intended to give people with Alzheimers disease or dementia and their caregiver a fun and mentally stimulating activity. The caregiver will learn about tools for coping with people at various stages of memory loss and those with dementias will enjoy the nature inspired programming with four different projects to bring home. Attendees will benefit from the group discussions, interaction and supportive atmosphere.

As we know, caring for someone with Alzheimers disease or other dementias can be challenging and
therefore, if you are unable to attend all meetings or arrive after the start time, please know the instructor understands.
