improving your life,
knowledge and understanding!
The Friendship Club was created to fill a need for supervised activities and brain games for early stages of memory loss. We realized that most Adult Day Care programs and centers did not fit the needs or wants for a younger more independent person dealing with the onset of memory loss.
While most Adult Day Care Centers' programs meet the needs of larger groups of people, dealing with diverse stages and behaviors associated with Alzheimer's Disease, we focus primarily on smaller groups of early memory loss clients only. Our daily program has been created for our level of clients. Our clients are people to interact with, not problems to be managed.
Our typical clients do most activities independently or with a few reminders. They are interested in being proactive managing their symptoms and memory loss. Friendship Club focuses on you and how you can live the fullest, healthiest and happiest life. Shepherd of the Hills has created a unique program to work with the whole person - physically, spiritually and emotionally. Each day has different activities aimed at enriching and enhancing your life.
The activities include:
Daily exercise and weight training
Art & "Memories in The Making" painting Class
Interactive nutrition and cooking fresh from our garden
Meditation and Devotions
Yoga & Tai Chi
Our group size is small, encouraging interaction and conversation. Clients at the Friendship Club receive a lot of one on one attention from our staff. Shepherd of the Hills staff includes experienced professionals, a licensed nutritionist, a certified Arthritis Foundation exercise instructor, Alzheimer's Association Early Memory Loss class facilitator, Alzheimer's Association "Memories In The Making" painting instructor, Tai Chi for Arthritis Certification from Dr. Paul lam's Tai Chi for Health Institute, Alzheimer's Association Support Group facilitator and Wellness instruction.
