Brain & Body Fitness - An evidence-informed group exercise program for people living with mild to moderate Alzheimer's disease and other related dementias and their care partners.
   
Boost Your Brain & Memory - An evidence-based brain health program that goes beyond simple brain games. This eight series adult education class focuses on a variety of lifestyle factors that impact brain health, and on memory strategies that participants can implement in their daily lives.
Describe, Investigate, Create and Evaluate (DICE) - An evidence informed approach for family caregivers of people with dementia who would like to learn ways to better manage behaviors, both in addition to or without medications. DICE sessions occur one-on-one or in a group setting with the dementia care specialist (DCS) and include activities that give caregivers a better understanding of the causes of Behavioral and Psychological Symptoms of Dementia, strategic plans for reducing or preventing the symptoms by applying the DICE approach in future instances of behavior.
