All Saints' Episcopal Church in Miami welcomed community members Aug. 23 for a free Alzheimer's learning session and will continue its faith initiative with 'Remembering on the Route' Sept. 13.
MIAMI – Community members gathered at the All Saints' Episcopal Church in Miami Wednesday, Aug. 23 for the free information session "10 signs of Alzheimer's" presented by Cathy Sullins of the Alzheimer's Association.
All Saints' will continue with its Alzheimer's faith initiative Wednesday, Sept. 13 from 10 a.m. to noon. All Saints’ Rev. Mary Koppel said the program will provide a place for those with Alzheimer’s or Dementia and their caregivers to come for support, food, and fun provided by INTEGRIS Miami.
‘Remembering on the Route’ is modeled in the style of what is known as ‘Memory Cafes,’ a support group structure with a social twist that has its origins in the Netherlands. The idea being to provide a safe and comfortable space where caregivers and their loved ones can socialize, listen to music, play games, and enjoy other activities outside of their normal routines.
All Saints’ is located at 225 B St. NW in Miami. For more information call 918-542-3662 or visit http://allsaintsmiami.epiok.org/.
