Alzheimer’s Association Launches AlzWell Social Club in Westchester

 On select Sundays beginning March 10, the Alzheimer’s Association Hudson Valley Chapter welcomes community members to its free AlzWell Social Club at the JCC Mid-Westchester.

 The AlzWell Social Club is a fun, friendly afternoon of activities designed specifically for people with early-stage dementia or other memory impairment and their families. The program includes lunch, a choice of three creative programs, and a musical performance. The creative programs will vary and can include art, dance, or music groups; a book club; writing workshops; book making; art journaling; and a drama group that will work collaboratively on a short play.

 Meg Boyce, vice president of programs and services for the Alzheimer’s Association says, “Our goal is to create a welcoming place for people living with Alzheimer’s or other dementia. You can meet people facing similar challenges, make new friends, and most importantly, have an enjoyable, relaxing afternoon.”

The AlzWell Social Club will meet at JCC Mid-Westchester, 999 Wilmot Rd., Scarsdale, NY 10583 on the following Sundays, March 10 & 17, April 14 & 21, May 5, 19 & 26, and June 2 & 30, from 12:30-3:30 p.m.
