Memory Matters Utah/Nevada Provides Early Stage Memory Loss Intervention
Beginning February 14, Memory Matters is offering a 10-week course to registered participants that will benefit those with early stage memory loss or dementia diagnosis and their care partners. A group of local professionals will provide the tools and resources necessary to participants as they face the challenge of a memory loss illness.
The classes will promote brain health and help participants plan for the future. This 10-week course is meant to aid the person with memory loss and their primary care partner. Professionals in the community will present on matters of importance to the group and provide connections to available resources. These include presentations on legal and financial preparation, pharmaceutical and alternative remedies, brain health and nutrition. For the second hour the participants may attend either a cognitive training group or a care partner training and support group.
Preregistration is required to attend this course that will begin on Tuesday, February 14th, 2017, from 10:30am-12:30pm and is co-sponsored by the St. George Library, Five County Area Agency on Aging and Three Corners Women’s Giving Circle.
