Connections Social Program Benefits Minds & Bodies in Early Dementia

Connections Senior Social Program, Friendship Center’s brain-training program, mid-December at All Saints-by-the-Sea Church.

As the name suggests, Connections is about connecting, both socially and cognitively. Each three-hour session features socially engaging activities, music, group discussions and light exercise. Connections is geared specifically toward members in the early stages of a dementia diagnosis, with the two-fold goal of challenging the mind and encouraging new synaptic connections in the brain.

Members will be required to wear masks and socially distance during meetings.

All Saints-by-the-Sea Church has given Friendship Center the thumbs up to resume Connections meetings in their Parish House Fireside Room, across from Friendship Center.

When: Tuesdays, 9 a.m. to noon, at All Saints’ Parish House Fireside Room, across the street from Friendship Center.
Cost: $50 per session.
