Making Connections program - April 2024 (for 4 sessions)

MAC’s dementia-friendly program Making Connections is being held every Wednesday morning at Our Lady of the Mountains Catholic Church on Lorimer Road from 10:30 am to 1:00 pm. For April, sessions will be held on Apr 3, Apr 10, Apr 17 and Apr 24 

This program is for seniors with dementia and their caregivers.  The sessions will start with 45 minutes of gentle fitness followed by a period of games and brain stimulating activities, and socializing over a light lunch.  Lunch will usually be trays of sandwiches, fruit, tea and coffee.  A roster of volunteers from the community assists by participating in activities and serving lunch.

Participants should register and prepay for the month to help us recover some costs and assist us with planning. The fee will be $5 per person per session ($20 per person for April).  

This fee will entitle you to all components of the program, 45 minutes of gentle fitness, games and other mentally stimulating activities, and socializing over a light lunch.

We are extremely grateful to Father Andrew L'Heureux and the diocese for making this venue available and for being so supportive.  This program provides a wonderful opportunity to renew old friendships and make new connections in a welcoming and fun social environment.
