SPARK! programs offer participants an opportunity to enhance their quality of life through social engagement, mental stimulation, and communication in a safe and comfortable atmosphere. We aim to shift the focus from deficiencies often associated with memory loss, Alzheimer’s disease, and related dementias to the rich and satisfying experiences that are possible through creative engagement.
