Colleen Hussey at Memories and More will offer the Memories and More Program for people experiencing memory challenges.

Together with family and friends, you can learn coping strategies, find laughter, friendship and community with others who share the journey.

Memory problems don’t inhibit our opinions, interests and sense of humour, so Colleen has designed activities and sessions that focus on our strengths as well as include adaptations to allow one to enjoy our times together.

Her years of experience assist family and friends to understand the ramifications and better communicate with their loved one. Careers need support and resources in the community as well as fun time.

The 12-week program at the Native Son’s Hall begins Jan. 18 from 1 to 3 p.m. Contact the Evergreen Seniors’ Centre to register.

A social get together program is also available beginning Mondays from 2 to 4 p.m. A drop-in group in the Evergreen Seniors Centre cafeteria will explore interests and hobbies as well as exercises for the body and brain with a dollop of laughter to boot. Goodies are always served.

For details, contact Hussey at 250-338-4756.
