MemoryMinders began as an idea from a concerned friend regarding her husband’s memory wellness. Having cared for patients and family members with memory issues, Jill’s passion for memory wellness grew into founding and beginning the first MemoryMinders group program in 2010.
Since then, MemoryMinders continues to facilitate group programs, provide community and professional educational presentations and offer individual and organizational memory wellness services. Documented as well as felt improvement in cognitive function and quality of life has been demonstrated by MemoryMinders’ clients and families.
Memory Minders programming creates a supportive, interactive social environment that encourages purpose, independence and individual strengths. Memory Minders believes education, exercise, social interaction and community involvement are all crucial to enhancing and sustaining memory wellness and quality of life. Based on this belief, proactive and interactive services are offered benefitting those interested in memory wellness and their families.
