This support group meets on the 2nd Thursday of each month - Join us every month for a variety of cultural programs!

Individuals with early Alzheimer's, related dementias and mild cognitive impairment are welcome. In order to attend, participants must be accompanied by a family member or care partner.

There is no cost to attend.

May’s program is Soaring with the Birds—which will touch on the tranquil effects birding has on individuals with cognitive impairments. Since migration is in full swing, we will investigate the birds that you enjoy at your backyard feeders and their unique characteristics. We will also briefly discuss The Migratory Birding Act and climate change.

Presenter: Alyse Cohen Burman is the owner of The WildBird Shack, Ltd., located in Mt. Prospect. Burman has been birding for over 20 years, traveling throughout the United States to pursue her passion of birding. She had the opportunity to work with various senior care communities which included memory care. Blending her experience with birds and health care she introduced a program called Tranquil Feathers; combining outdoor birding with indoor activities to avert the effect of sundowning.
