Description of project

Encore! is an adult social day care program for vulnerable adults and seniors with a functional disability. It provides a friendly, safe site; an opportunity to socialize; respite for caregivers; nutritious meals; an opportunity to learn new skills and to use old ones. The weekly program utilizes creative arts as tools for strengthening and maintaining cognitive functioning, optimizing abilities and reducing stress. Involvement in music and arts offers opportunities to focus on creative experiences that stimulate greater parts of the brain, increasing the likelihood of success. Participants can expect to sing, share memories, drum, write songs, read, compose poems, exercise, improvise, move, tell stories, draw, learn to relax and engage in other memory enhancement experiences. Fun, creative and social fitness for the brain. Participants in the program can live a healthier, happier and more active life and possibly delay or prevent placement in a nursing home. Family caregivers can also receive a respite from their responsibilities.
