This week, we are sharing evidence-based information about staying physically active for brain health and wellness. In whatever way is safe for you, try and engage in a physical activity every day - like walking in nature, dancing, or low-impact chair exercises.
The Memory Hub brings together UW Memory and Brain Wellness Center (MBWC), the Frye Art Museum, the Alzheimer’s Association, Elderwise, and Full Life Care. Read on as our collaborators share updates and reflect on the growth at the Memory Hub.
A year into the COVID-19 pandemic, the landscape of opportunities for people with memory loss and their families to stay socially, physically and cognitively active has shifted dramatically. Read about how the MBWC shifted events to a virtual format and how everyone can now access local virtual dementia-friendly programs.
Nature and natural experiences come in all shapes and sizes. We can decorate a bland office with a basket of succulents. We can take a walk in a public garden or hike up Mount Si or a favorite forest trail. Or, we can simply enjoy birdwatching from our kitchen window.
