Living & Learning: 4-Week Memory Training Program

Thursday, March 12, 2015
3:30PM - 5:30PM
Temple David, 4415 Northern Pike, Monroeville, PA 15146

This innovative, research-based program is for adults over age 60. The four-week program (March 12, 19, 26 and April 2) focuses on strategies that develop good memory habits and techniques to improve memory. The course targets the four most common memory complaints:

- Forgetting names and faces
- Forgetting to do things in the future—like keeping an appointment, passing on a phone message or forgetting why you walked into a room.
- Forgetting where you put things—like keys, glasses, wallet
- Knowing something you can’t immediately recall... or “tip of the tongue” memory challenges

*This program is not intended for people with Alzheimer’s disease or other forms of dementia.
