The ARK, Alzheimer’s Family Support Services, has created a new class, “The Navigation Club,” designed to support brain health through engaging members in five important content areas: socialization, mental agility, physical activity, spirituality, and nutrition. Anyone wanting to maintain and improve their memory is encouraged to attend.

The class meets weekly on Fridays, starting on May 10th at The ARK House, 502 West 5th North Street in Summerville, from 8:45 am to 12:30 pm.

“According to research in the field of senior health, maintaining optimum brain health can be accomplished by incorporating good habits into your lifestyle,” Peg Lahmeyer, executive director of The ARK, said. “Being proactive about brain health can help an individual work against the possibility of developing Alzheimer’s disease or a related dementia.”

The classes will be facilitated by a coordinator who is knowledgeable about memory loss and the maintenance of healthy brain function. Guest speakers will discuss topics having to do with the health and vitality of the brain. While classes will encourage club member participation, there will also be tools provided for practice at home. Each class includes a healthy snack, weekly resources, and recommended readings. Members may request a memory screening test to establish a baseline measurement.

The ARK provides essential services for families living with Alzheimer’s disease or other dementia. Serving five counties: Berkeley, Charleston, Colleton, Dorchester and Orangeburg. The ARK offers respite care, support groups, caregiver consultation, caregiver education workshops, resource referrals, law enforcement and first responders training, community learning programs, and rural services development.

To register, contact Micky Styslinger, program director at [email protected] or call 843-471-1360.
