Memory impairments group to meet Oct. 2

September 21, 2012

MIDDLETOWN, Md. —
The Dove and Olive Branch Inc., a gathering place for people with early-stage memory impairments, will begin serving the community Tuesday, Oct. 2, at Zion Lutheran Church, at 107 W. Main St., in Middletown, Md.

The participant-driven forum provides a safe and welcoming environment for people, offering social interaction, engagement, and a non-denominational spiritual focus in the compassionate company of others with similar challenges. Participants must have a diagnosis of an early-stage memory impairment, be ambulatory, and be willing to engage socially.

Activities may include exercise, reminiscence, music, gardening, and group talk. The strengths-based program will operate weekly from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. Tuesdays and Fridays  in the Garden's Edge room. Program fees are $10 per week. Meeting space is generously donated by Zion Lutheran Church.
