Brainbuilders Men's Group
Tuesdays 10:00-11:30am
University Place, West Lafayette

The purpose of the weekly men's group is to maximize thinking, memory, and communication in a social setting. We believe that function is improved by capitalizing on preserved cognitive and language abilities.

Activities include creation of a photo lifestory book, cognitive exercises and art. There is also special time for socializing with other participants and family members.

Circle of Support Group
Tuesdays 10:00-11:30am
University Place, West Lafayette

The Circle of Support, a weekly support meeting for spouses and other caregivers, is offered at the same time and same location as Brainbuilders Men's Group. Caregivers can be more relaxed and engaged in group discussions because they know their family member is close by and involved in enjoyable activities.

Education and support for family is critical for maintaining well-being and managing the ever changing demands of caregiving.
