IEA Brain Health Club – REOPENING
We are excited to announce the IEA Brain Health Club at the Central Community Center is reopening starting July 7, 2021 and will run every Monday and Wednesday from 1pm - 3:30pm.
IEA Brain Health Club (IEA BHC) is designed to meet the social and emotional needs of adults with dementia and their caregivers. It provides activities and socialization opportunities outside the home in a safe and caring setting for older adults with early to mid-stage Alzheimer’s disease and related dementias. IEA BHC offers care partners personal time away during the day to rest and take care of personal concerns. In addition, resource information and dementia education may be provided.
This program provides a safe, loving environment for the well-being of each participant. A variety of activities are designed to socially, creatively, intellectually, physically and spiritually stimulate the participants’ bodies and minds. Examples of some of these activities include group singing, arts and crafts, community service projects, reminiscing, exercise, games, puzzles, and socialization activities.
This program provides respite (an interval of rest or relief) for the caregiver. It supports the efforts of the family to keep the loved one in the home. This program can also provide information regarding available community care and resources, Alzheimer’s information and caregiver education.
