   WELCOME TO THE BEST OF TIMES

SEPTEMBER 16 MARKS OUR 1 YEAR ANNIVERSARY AT OUR NEW LOCATION!

 

CELEBRATING 20 YEARS - SAVE THE DATE!

It's hard to believe it has been 20 years since the UMSSC was formed.  We look forward to celebrating this milestone with you at an Open House on Friday, October 20 from 11:30 am to 1:30 pm.  We would like our members to share their memories and any photos of their time spent at the senior center.  Jot them down and bring them in to the office.  Attached to the August Newsletter is an RSVP/Donation Form.  If you make a donation your name will be listed in our Keepsake Program which will be handed out at the Open House.  Donations can also be made in memory of a loved one or in  honor of a friend.  PLEASE  RETURN THE RSVP IF YOU PLAN TO ATTEND!

MEMORY CAFE` THURSDAY AUGUST 24 AND SEPTEMBER 7 AND FRIDAY, SEPTEMBER 22

FROM 12:30 PM TO 1:30 PM

Originally started in England, this informal setting provides the caregiver a forum for discussion, reducing the isolation often felt by people with dementia, their caregivers and families.  Discussions can range from practicial tips for coping with dementia, avoiding caregiver burnout or information about community resources.  There is no cost or obligation and many attendees develop friendships that result in support even outside the Memory Cafe` setting.  Presesnted by Emily Bova, Certified Dementia Practioner from Arden Courts at King of Prussia.
