A new program aims to exercise people's memories.

A new program aims to exercise people's memories.

Minds in Motion is a fitness and social program for people experiencing early stage memory loss (Alzheimer's disease or a related dementia) and a friend, family member or caregiver that is now being offered in Coquitlam.

A certified fitness instructor conducts the fitness portion of the program. For the second half, a facilitator ensures participants are welcomed and assists with social interaction and involvement in activities, guided by the needs and interests of the participants.

The Alzheimer Society of British Columbia is offering this program in Coquitlam in partnership with Dogwood Pavilion, a city recreation facility for people 50 and older. The program is offered on an on-going basis in blocks of seven weeks on Wednesdays from 1 to 3 p.m. and the fee is $32. Participants register with a partner.

For more information on this program and how to participate, contact Kate Cowell, Minds in Motion co-ordinator, at 604-742-4923 or go to
