• Community/Senior Centers - Awesome resources for

     senior social activities, senior-centered exercise classes,

     dementia and bereavement support groups.

     (Post: Demention the go, go, GO!)

  • Community Newspapers - Look for an events listing section

     for a great place to find local, affordable arts and community

     events suitable to your care partner's interest. (Post: Dementiaon the go, go, GO!)

  • Local Colleges - The performance arts departments of local/community colleges are a wonderful and affordable way to see live music and theatre with your care partner.

  • Children - Old people love kids! Without being creepy (or be creepy - what do I care?), spend a little time at a playground park with your care partner watching kids tumble up and tumble down. Or attend children's theatre performances, or visit a children's museum. (Post: Demention the go, go, GO!)

  • Airports - Pack a lunch and find a good place to watch planes take off and land. At PDX, it's any of the Cascade Station's parking lots - the planes fly right over! And Mom can stay in her nice, warm van and ooh and ahh over the spectacle while enjoying a milkshake.

  • Memories in the Making & Sing Here Now (Portland, OR) - Both for early to mid-stages dementia folks, another fine-arts creation program for dementia people, and a dementia choir! Both offered by the Oregon and SW Washington Alzheimer's Association. Mom is too advanced for us to have tried either but they sound fantastic. Check with your local Alzheimer Association to see if a similar program is offered in your area.
