Master of Memory programming offered to the community

The Connection Café on Wednesday mornings at 10 am beginning May 5

The Connection Café will feature the Master of Memory program series offered by OSU Extension this May.

Are you concerned about memory problems? If so, join us for this 4-part series, Master of Memory.

Studies show that 80 percent of older adults complain about memory problems, but only 15 percent report them to their health professional. People of all ages complain about forgetting, but older people tend to worry more about forgetting and memory loss. Regardless of age, memory losses are increased by factors such as inattention, anxiety or depression. Living alone, stress, illness, adapting to the loss of relationships, and the negative stereotypes of society all may affect the older person and their memory.

Master of Memory encourages participants to recognize they can impact their memory function and identify factors that may enhance or detract from their memory function. We will share suggestions that may help address some of those concerns.

OSU Extension will offer The Connection Café on Wednesday mornings at 10 am beginning May 5. These four sessions will be offered online. Sessions will include information on memory strategies, nutrition, medications, medical conditions, and exercise for the body and mind.
