COGS Club every Friday
every Friday 10 am to 3 pm.
A club for people with mild dementia.
A COGS session consists of a full day of activity, stimulation, music and fun
for a person with mild dementia or memory-loss problems.
The weekly sessions
last for as long as a member can benefit.
COGS provides the
opportunity for them to recall or develop new skills in activities and to
facilitate transfer of these skills to activities at home.
COGS also provides the family/carer with a day's respite.
The criteria for
joining the club is that each member is able to participate actively in the
activities, is self-caring and has the willingness to be part of the group.
