Exercise and Movement

It is important for people with memory impairment to be physically active. Benefits range from improved cognition, more stable mobility, and increased self-esteem.

We plan various physical activities throughout the day based on your loved one's interests so they can feel relaxed, stronger, and invigorated.

Friends New and Old

Social interaction improves cognition while building a sense of community. The Sam L. Cohen Center provides numerous opportunities for members to meet new friends or engage with familiar ones. Friendships are one of the things we like to encourage the most here because it's our friends that make us happy. We encourage ongoing friendships and the start of new ones because of the fulfilling connections it supplies our members.
