Community Activities

While there are many advantages to being able to stay at home, one disadvantage can be the lack of social interaction with peers. To address this, our Visiting Angels team provides community activities at our Annex in Brookfield, lovingly named the Active and Engaged program (A&E for short). The A&E Program runs every week on Thursdays from 1:00pm-3:00pm. Programs are designed around seasonal themes, such as Valentine’s Day, St. Patrick’s Day, Spring in Bloom, Summer Festival, Fall Colors, and Holiday Celebrations.

Education for Families

We offer free monthly Alzheimer’s support meetings in the Annex by trained professionals for families in the community. We are working to add additional types of support group meetings in the near future and welcome your suggestions for topics to cover.

We are proud to offer complementary Online Courses for our family members that may be facing new challenges with an aging loved one on the Collins Learning Center .education-for-families
