The event is part of the Alzheimer’s Association’s Alz Meet Up program. “We are excited to start offering engaging activities year round through this program,” said Melody Bushmich, manager of early stage engagement programs at the Alzheimer’s Association. “We want to create a stigma-free environment for diagnosed individuals and their care partners that will also present an opportunity to form much-needed bonds.” Alz Meet Ups are a part of the Alzheimer’s Association Power+Purpose campaign, which aims to offer those Alzheimer’s the resources to continue living their lives as close to normal for as long as possible.
