Virtual Social Recreation


In light of everyone being affected by the COVID-19 pandemic, here at AlzSWP we wanted to provide some ways for people living with dementia and their care partners to stay positive and engaged!

We want to continue to support our clients even when we can’t see you everyday.  We have put together a wide range of activities to keep you movin’ and groovin’ in the safety of your own home. 

We hope you’ll join us!

            Please Note:

            We ask that you make sure when you participate virtually in exercise programs you take care to create a place that is clutter-free and safe for you. Make sure you have proper footwear and the area is clear.

            Also, please only participate as much as your body feels comfortable – this is intended to be a program to gently move your body – so don’t push yourself beyond what feels okay. If you’d rather not participate but want to just be here and watch, that is totally fine too!

            Thank you to our sponsors and funders for supporting us
            and our families during this time of change

            Why is Social Recreation Important?

            Social stimulation for people living with dementia and their care partner is important as it promotes and enhances social connections, engagement and intellectual stimulation. This is especially important during social distancing when everyone is more at risk of isolation.
