Brain Health and Memory Loss Program
“Inspiring hope and confidence for this difficult journey…”
Individuals and families experiencing concerns about brain health or reacting to a diagnosis can be overwhelmed by questions, decisions, and new emotions. To support them, a planning grant funded by a generous donor enabled the Village to identify the most important components for our growing Brain Health and Memory Loss program:
Care partner support
Referrals to best practice resources,
Community programs, education,
Help for adult children and spouses evaluating memory care programs and facilities.
Working with local and national experts, the Village is implementing brain health initiatives that may significantly delay the onset of dementia and related conditions, as well as improving overall health.
The Village continuously seeks opportunities to surround members with resources that will both support and enrich their lives. Frequently these resources are discovered and shared by members; or are little known but important information; or something we have created ourselves.
