NEW PROJECTS IN PROGRESS IN 2019 and 2020
Beyond Bingo, Inc., in partnership with Family Services of Lake County, The Sheridan at Green Oaks, and funded by a Grant from the Spungen Family Foundation, will be presenting a year of Memory Cafés.
Memory Cafés offer the opportunity, free of charge, for those with Alzheimer’s Disease and their caregivers to take a break from the rigors of caregiving, and reconnect in a relaxed and enjoyable setting not only with each other, but with others who share their situation. Thru specially designed and facilitated programming, presented by professionals specifically trained in working with this very special population, participants will have a chance to relax and enjoy themselves in a supportive environment that promotes engagement and positive experiences for those living with the challenges of Alzheimer’s disease. These sessions will also include educational materials related to the topic each month that provide not only tips on how to recreate their experiences at home, but also information about the disease, ways to manage the challenges of caregiving, and links and contact information for resources and support services in the area. The full year schedule will be released later this month. RSVP as space is limited. We look forward to having you join us!
NEW PROJECTS IN 2018!
2018 has been a marvelous and BUSY year!
Beyond Bingo, Inc., will celebrate its 5th Anniversary this September and my dream of spending my days engaging directly with seniors in a respectful, creative and meaningful way that honors them as individuals has become reality. Yes, there have been challenges, but they have been minor, and have been far outweighed by the successes and the feeling of truly loving how I spend my days and the opportunity this work provides for making a difference in the lives of our seniors.
In May of 2018 Beyond Bingo Incorporated!
Murals To Remember™ became a trademarked program and helped seniors in 4 states join together with family members and caregivers to create beautiful works of art that renewed their sense of confidence in their skills and abilities and provided social, emotional, physical and intellectual engagement as well as creating a lasting point of focus for reminiscence programs for years to come. Murals To Remember™ had the opportunity to be a part of its first Mobile Murals To Remember™ program! Wait til you see those pictures!!!
