'Remembering on the Route' provides those with Alzheimer's/Dementia and their caregivers time to socialize, listen to music, play games, and enjoy other activities outside of their normal routines.
MIAMI – Miami's All Saints' Episcopal Church will host its first 'Remembering on the Route' gathering Wednesday, Sept. 13 from 10 a.m. to noon as a part of its ongoing Alzheimer's service mission.
'Remembering on the Route' is modeled after what is known as 'Memory Cafes,' a support group structure with a social twist. The gatherings provide a safe and comfortable space where those with Alzheimer's/Dementia and their caregivers can socialize, listen to music, play games, and enjoy other activities outside of their normal routines.
INTEGRIS Miami and the Alzheimer's Association will offer additional support during the gathering with snacks and information.
All Saints' Rev. Mary Koppel said the program would also allow the church to get much-needed feedback from the community about its service needs and how to build upon and improve its faith initiative for Alzheimer's/Dementia. The church is planning to have 'Remembering on the Route' become an ongoing event.
All Saints' is also providing another of its community education sessions on Alzheimer's/Dementia Wednesday, Sept. 27 at 10 a.m. The Alzheimer's Association will be on hand again at the church parish with a program about healthy living to help prevent the disease.
All Saints' is located at 225 B St. NW in Miami. For more information call 918-542-3662 or visit http://allsaintsmiami.epiok.org/.
