You can do something about memory issues. Door County Medical Center presents Memory In Development (M.IN.D), a free workshop for people coping with an early dementia-related diagnosis or mild memory concerns. This six week, research-driven exercise and caregiver support workshop empowers participants and caregivers through access to education, strategies, and support in a socially enriching atmosphere.
Powerful Tools for Caregivers will be offered consecutively with MIND. Powerful Tools for Caregivers is an evidence-based workshop researched to promote caregiver health by offering tools that enhance not only caregiving but caregiver wellbeing. Any adult family caregiver, even those who do not have a loved one participating in MIND, can participate in Powerful Tools.
There are two locations for the workshops:
Northern Door: Scandia Village Good Samaritan, Sister Bay. Wednesdays, Sept. 7- Oct. 12, 12:30-3:30 p.m.
Sturgeon Bay: United Methodist Church. Wednesdays, October 17-Nov. 23, 12:00-3:00 p.m.
M.IN.D. is offered in collaboration between Ministry Memory Clinic, Door County YMCA, Scandia Village Good Samaritan, United Methodist Church, and the ADRC of Door County/Aging Services. Lunch and materials are included. For more information or to register, please contact Program Coordinator Christy Wisniewski, at (920) 746-3504.
