Caregivers Circle Presents Strategies For Memory Management

Have you ever wanted to say something but couldn't think of the right word? This phenomenon is known as "tip of the tongue," a completely normal, age related condition. Wouldn't it be great to develop memory management strategies to avoid such experiences?  If you're worried but otherwise well, living with dementia or caring for someone with mild cognitive inpairment, Heather Gray Gately & Donna Spellman from Lifted: The Brain Wellness Center, in Norwalk, CT, will discuss brain health strategies that will improve cognitive function, resilience, and the imnnate strength within everyone.

 

This program is part of the Caregivers Circle educational series sponsored by the Greenwich Commission on Aging and River House.

 

Speaker Bios:

Heather Gray Gately established DREAM (Dementia Research Education Advocacy in Motion), in April 2012,  to deliver engagement and support through groundbreaking initiatives like Memory Lane Cafes, group outings, and therapeutic spa days. This approach fostered a nurturing environment where individuals and their care partners found community, strength, and solace.  Lifted: The Brain Wellness Center is the culmination of Heather's vision and a testament to the power of compassion and innovation in cognitive care.

Donna Spellman earned her BA in Musical Theatre at Clark University and, later, her Master’s degree in Community Counseling at the University of Bridgeport, along with her Certification in Healthy Aging from Boston University’s Institute for Geriatric Social Work. Formerly the Executive Director at River House Adult Day Center in Greenwich, she served as advisor on the Age and Dementia Friendly Greenwich Task Force in collaboration with the Greenwich Commission on Aging.  Currently, Donna serves on the Advisory Board for the Southwestern CT Agency on Aging.
