Dubuque Caregiver Resource Center to offer social opportunity for caregivers and loved ones with dementia
Are you struggling to find safe social activities that you and your loved one with dementia can participate in? Being a caregiver of someone with Dementia can challenging and overwhelming. Feelings of isolation may have increased since Covid entered our world and social opportunities have dissipated.
The Caregiver Resource Center is pleased to announced that in partnership with Northeast Iowa School of Music and the Shalom Spirituality Center, we have created the Music, Movement and Memory workshop just for you.
Music, Movement and Memory is a free workshop that will begin Monday, February 7 (1-2pm) and run weekly for 5 weeks. Sessions are held at the Shalom Spirituality Center at 1001 Davis Street in Dubuque.
Universally, music has the ability to connect humans, energy, and memories. Research shows that music is one of the most powerful activities for dementia, because it has the potential to increase physical and social activity, reignite past memories, improve sleep, mood, cognition, communication, and overall quality of life.
The Music, Movement, and Memory workshop curriculum is designed to engage the mind and body in a safe and flexible environment. The sessions will be led by Tracey Rush, Creative Aging Specialist at Northeast Iowa School of Music. Tracey has extensive experience leading group activities, specifically with the aging population.
RSVP by February 4th to firstname.lastname@example.org or 563.690.9679.
