CLASSES DESIGNED WITH YOU IN MIND
Our learning environment is welcoming and nurturing. Our specially trained instructors adjust the classes to respond to the special needs of people coping with mild memory loss.
So, while our classes are about many topics, the underlying “lesson” is always about maximizing your memory.
There is no stigma, no judgment, and no homework. We just want you to help you grow.
IS THE MEMORY TREE RIGHT FOR YOU?
The Memory Tree is just for people with mild memory loss or early-stage Alzheimer’s disease. Our classes are not appropriate for people with moderate to advanced memory loss. They would find our activities frustrating and would hold back the group.
For this reason, we conduct a private interview with all new participants to make sure that we would be a good fit.
There are other programs in the region for people with more advanced memory loss, and we’d be happy to put you in touch with them..
HOW MUCH DOES IT COST?
As a not for profit organization we aim to keep The Memory Tree affordable by anyone who wants to attend. Accordingly we have developed a sliding tuition scale. One of our guiding principles is that tuition should never be an insurmountable barrier to participation.
CAN I DONATE? YES!
We rely on donations to help defray the expenses of running the program. Our not-for-profit organization receives no governmental subsidy, and class fees do not over all our costs.
