CELEBRATING 20 YEARS

It's hard to believe it has been 20 years since the UMSSC was formed.  We look forward to celebrating this milestone with you.  We would like our members to share their memories and any photos of their time spent at the senior center.  Jot them down and bring them in to the office.  Additional details of the 20th Anniversary of UMSSC will be forthcoming.

MEMORY CAFE` THURSDAY JULY 20 and 27 FROM 12:30 PM TO 1:30 PM

Originally started in England, this informal setting provides the caregiver a forum for discussion, reducing the isolation often felt by people with dementia, their caregivers and families.  Discussions can range from practicial tips for coping with dementia, avoiding caregiver burnout or information about community resources.  There is no cost or obligation and many attendees develop friendships that result in support even outside the Memory Cafe` setting.  Presesnted by Emily Bova, Certified Dementia Practioner from Arden Courts at King of Prussia.
