Event description

Description

It’s time for a Creature Feature! Take part in a wildlife program led by one of Beaver Lake’s Naturalists, who will bring in a surprise visitor for guests to meet. Beaver Lake offers multiple opportunities for visitors of any age and ability to engage with nature, from taking in views of Beaver Lake from the wildlife viewing area to checking out the outdoor gardens and lily pond to taking a short walk on one of their nature trails.

Social engagement activities are a fun and comfortable way for people living with Alzheimer’s or other form of dementia and their caregiver to get out, get active, and get connected with one another through a variety of social events and community-based activities. These activities are determined by the individual needs and interests of the participants, while working to promote social interaction and companionship.

One of the core themes underlying the social engagement experience is the changes an individual with Alzheimer’s or other dementia experiences in their behavior, cognition, daily routines and relationships. These changes can often result in isolation, depression and lack of connection with those around them. Thus, individuals seek opportunities that allow them to make meaningful contributions and remain involved and active in daily life, friendships and decisions for as long as possible. These events are also a great opportunity for caregivers to connect with each other.

Individuals with Alzheimer's disease or other dementia must be accompanied by their caregiver(s) at this event. Caregivers are welcome to attend on their own.
