MOODY GARDENS HOSTS EARLY-STAGE ALZHEIMER’S SOCIAL ENGAGEMENT PROGRAM
Program Provides Vital Experiences after Diagnosis

GALVESTON, Texas – Moody Gardens’ Education Department will host another itinerary of activities as part of “Growing Together,” a series designed to help people living with the early stages of Alzheimer’s to remain mentally and socially active after their diagnosis.

Great advances have been made in the ability to detect Alzheimer’s in its early stages, so many dementia-related programs have been able to be more focused on serving people in this phase of the disease. The Alzheimer’s Association encourages early detection so that families can plan for the future together and take advantage of available resources. One such resource is programs like this which provide opportunities for appropriate social engagement that allows participants to interact and connect with others who are facing similar challenges.

The Alzheimer’s Association Early-Stage Social Engagement Program offers a fun and comfortable way for people in the early stage of the disease to get out, get active and get connected with one another through a variety of community-based activities and events. The next event is scheduled for Jan. 9 from 10:45 a.m.–12:30 p.m. with the theme “Flavors of the Forest.” Participants will get to go on a special tour of the Rainforest Pyramid canopy where they will get to see beautifully colored birds, monkeys, bats, butterflies and even the Giant River Otters from an overhead view. After the tour, attendees will be treated to a fun and entertaining presentation where they will even get to sample and use some of the different foods, spices and materials we interact with on a daily basis that come from the Rainforests of the World.

We are extremely excited to be able to offer participants in this program different opportunities to engage and explore the different Moody Gardens’ attractions,” said Jennifer Lamm, Moody Gardens’ Education Curator.

Programs are held to coincide with Senior Tuesdays at Moody Gardens. Senior Tuesdays offer guests 65 and older a One-Day Value Pass for $30. The Value Pass includes admission to the Aquarium Pyramid, Rainforest Pyramid, Discovery Pyramid, Colonel Paddlewheel Boat, and movies at the 3D and 4D Theaters.
