University of Washington is Offering a Free Virtual Program for Individuals with Memory Loss

Aging with Pride: IDEA (Innovations in Dementia Empowerment and Action) at the University of Washington is offering a free program for individuals with memory loss and their care partners. Either the person with memory loss or their care partner must be LGBTQ to participate. The program includes nine sessions with a trained coach and focuses on problem solving, improving communication, and low impact exercise. The sessions are virtual, using easy video chatting. This program is available in all 50 states. LGBTQ older adults are often isolated and difficult to connect with, and experiencing cognitive difficulties can increase social isolation. Programs such as these will help to impact positive change.
