Fellowship and activities for the elder...
Respite and peace of mind for the caregiver

Tuesdays & Thursdays
10 a.m. - 2 p.m.

The Aden Program offers social engagement and activities for the young at heart,
embracing those with memory impairment, as well as providing respite and peace of mind
for the loved one caring for them daily.

FOR THE CAREGIVER, the Aden Program provides an often-needed interval of rest or relief. The program also provides caregivers with personal time away during the day in which to address their own needs while supporting the efforts of the family to keep their loved one in the home environment, thus contributing to the quality of the life for the entire family.

FOR THE PARTICIPANT, the Aden Program provides a safe, loving environment focused on the well-being of each participant, catering to adults with dementia, memory issues, and those aging alone at home who can benefit greatly from social interaction.

Each day in the Aden Program involves a variety of activities including
social, creative, intellectual, spiritual and recreational programming along with a healthy lunch.

• Coffee and Conversation
• Group Crossword Puzzles
• Music

• Crafts
• Reminiscing
• Intergenerational Programs

• Art Therapy
• Card Games

Testimonials

“We were so glad to find the Aden Program. We considered other programs targeted to older adults, but they either did not consider memory care or seemed more like day care". - Participant

“He really looks forward to getting together with his friends at the “lunch bunch” each Tuesday and Thursday. Meanwhile as a caregiver I get a needed break, for errands, appointments, lunch with friends, or sometimes just a bit of down time by myself.”
- Family Member

“...the volunteer assistants, visitors and guest speakers really enrich the program by sharing their numerous talents and life stories...smiles and hugs, and sometimes a puppy dog or two!” - Family Member

“I have always been among people – active, traveling, going to plays, etc. But I’ve been sitting at home alone. My fuzzy memory keeps me from going out and being involved in what I used to love. Our conversation and friendships here are so great for me.” - Participant

“Good food, great companionship, and I enjoy sharing experiences with everyone.” - Participant
