Program Description: 
What is a Meet-Up? LiveWell hosts monthly in-person “Meet-Ups” where we can be social together. These fun gatherings are designed for individuals living with dementia and their care partners. While there is no charge to participate, you are responsible for your own expenses (i.e. activities, lunch). Meet-ups often take place over lunch. These gatherings are not support groups; they are an opportunity to develop supportive friendships and have some fun!

What participants are saying: 
“Everybody here is a lot of fun. And smiling makes my day!” -Care Partner/Participant

“You can say things and you don’t have to say I’m sorry he’s got a memory problem.” -Care Partner/Participant
