Additional Information: According to many studies, including the Alzheimer’s Association website “physical health and exercise, diet and nutrition, cognitive activity, and social engagement can help keep your body and brain healthy and potentially reduce your risk of cognitive decline.” Memory Masters reinforces these habits weekly, plus provides optional homework for each participant.
Memory Masters is a proactive approach in working on brain health for anyone concerned about their memory. In addition, the participants in classes like these often make lasting relationships with one another.
Though a class like Memory Masters is new to Kenosha, it is not a new concept. Early Memory Loss classes began in California in 2003 and several organizations in Milwaukee, Wisconsin began similar programs soon after. Since then, research studies, manuals, and best practice guides have been created, outlining a specific formula for organizations to use. With startup funding assistance from the Brookdale National Group Respite Program, KAFASI is able to bring the concept of this program to life.
