Friday Friends meeting via Zoom

Do you have a loved one experiencing Alzheimer’s or another form of dementia?

Friday Friends, a free “Caregiver’s Day Out” respite program, is continuing its ministry during the pandemic through one-hour Zoom sessions. The group, which began in 2017 and normally holds in-person sessions at Wilshire, now meets via Zoom the second and fourth Fridays each month from 11 a.m. to noon.

During these sessions, participants are provided stimulating and engaging activities, which have included bingo games, nostalgic singalongs, accredited music therapy and chair-yoga exercises to clear the mind and stretch the muscles.

Remaining dates for the fall are Sept. 25, Oct. 9, Oct. 23, Nov. 13 and Dec. 11.

If you are interested in having your loved one participate with us, please contact Marilyn Morgan, Friday Friends coordinator, at 214-662-9451 or for more information. Friday Friends is open to all. Wilshire membership is not required.
