Adult Memory Programs

Our memory programming offers a friendly, approachable environment to concentrate on yourself. Certain programs are facilitated by experts, including a Licensed Certified Clinical Social Worker (LCSW). Where a caregiver is involved, we offer a brief respite for you and the opportunity to join a monthly support group. For more information or to register, contact Rachel Ruth.

JCC membership is not required to participate in Adult Memory Programs.
