Exercise … we all know it’s good for us and, if we’re honest, we do feel better for doing it. After all, exercise bumps up the production of our brain’s ‘feel-good’ hormones called endorphins.
Our Memory Innovations Centre has adapted very quickly to keep seniors in the community connected and supported in the current climate. We are committed to keeping our clients and staff safe whilst ensuring seniors have access to our programs during these unprecedented times.

All too often people with memory issues are told to engage the brain, to do more crosswords or play games. A group of seniors in Waitara have chosen instead to take a weekly dance therapy class through our Memory Innovations Centre, with the goal of improving their memory and perhaps even preventing dementia.
Our Memory Innovations Centre opened on 28 January in Waitara! Designed to improves quality of life, wellbeing and help support cognitive decline for older Australians, our professionally run programs focus on having fun, connecting with others and using emerging technologies.
