Charlotte – Your dad is having problems with his memory, reasoning, and judgment. It’s more than everyday forgetfulness or normal signs of aging. But he doesn’t have full blown dementia.
That condition is called mild cognitive impairment. Some clinical evidence suggests brain games and activities can help a loved one stay at this level longer and not progress into full-blown dementia.
Learn brain games to try with your loved one, and discover the risk factors that can push mild cognitive impairment into full dementia or Alzheimer’s disease, at a free workshop from The Ivey, the adult day care center in SouthPark.
Join us for “Using Brain Games to Slow Mild Cognitive Impairment” on Tuesday, September 13th from 2 to 4 pm, repeated from 6 to 8 pm, at The Ivey, 6030 Park South Drive. Admission is free but pre-registration is required. To pre-register, call The Ivey at 704/909-2070. Light refreshments will be served.
Free adult day care services are available during the presentation for caregivers who need assistance for their loved ones. Arrange in advance by calling The Ivey.
You’ll leave with new ideas to build your loved one’s memory and logic and reasoning skills. The presenter is Dr. Vicki Parker, founder and director of The Brain Trainer, an evidence-based brain training and speech therapy facility in south Charlotte.
