On Dec 20, 2017, the Alzheimer Society Elgin-St. Thomas wrapped up their first session with the YMCA Elgin of Minds in Motion. Minds in Motion is a fitness program for people living with dementia and their caregivers. It combines an hour of physical fitness with an hour of mental and social stimulation. The program runs once a week for 8 weeks. Member of Parliament, Karen Vecchio, attended the last session. “This program provides such an incredible opportunity for those with Alzheimer’s and their caregivers to join together for fun and support,” said Vecchio. “This program has so many benefits including physical exercise and inclusion and is needed in our community.”
