Why join the program? Here's what participants had to say about it:
“Excellent program - great people, got me out of the house and got a lot of information and communication with other people. I felt more comfortable being here a second time, saw an improvement in my mother - she smiled often!”
“Should have on repeat all year long”
“The meaningful activity portion of the program is an excellent concept for mental stimulation, positive encouragement [and] promoting self esteem. My relative really enjoyed the interaction and social aspect with the other participants.”
“I already requested to be in the next MiM program, good job by all involved”
