Details:

Join us for this eye-opening sensory event where you will experience first-hand the overwhelming effects of the aging process when combined with Alzheimer’s disease and other memory impairments. You will become aware of the challenges from performing ordinary tasks persons living with memory loss face everyday.

Scheduling 15-minute appointments from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m.

Call 610-377-7070 to make your reservation.

Space is limited, so make your reservation early.

At 2 p.m., join us for a “Memory Café” hour hosted by Arden Courts, specifically for people with dementia and their caregivers.

This informal setting provides caregivers a forum for discussion, reducing the isolation often felt by people with dementia, their caregivers and families. Discussions can range from practical tips for coping with dementia, avoiding caregiver burnout or information about community resources. There is no cost or obligation.

You do not have to participate in the Virtual Dementia Tour to attend the Memory Café, but please call to register if you are interested in the memory café portion of the program.
