The onsite CONNECTIONS program is temporarily suspended due to COVID-19 but will resume via Zoom in September 2020.

The CONNECTIONS Program is a wonderful option for those who want social and cognitive stimulation, as well as learning effective strategies to help slow down memory loss.

Fun and challenging games, puzzles, and memory strengthening exercises are offered in a friendly and stimulating environment. Other activities include support group discussions, music and light physical exercise.

CONNECTIONS is also a great proactive cognitive-enhancing program for people who have been diagnosed with mild cognitive impairment (MCI), or early stages of Alzheimer’s disease.

 Cost: $50/session (includes light breakfast and lunch)     

Connections meets weekly at each location: in Montecito at All Saints-by-the-Sea Episcopal Church, across the street from Friendship Center, and in Goleta at the cottage on Live Oak’s grounds, with light breakfast and lunch provided at both sites. Participants join in a supportive environment, providing camaraderie and reducing feelings of isolation.
