Public invited to the Third Annual Momentia Celebration for people living with memory loss

Seattle Parks and Recreation invites the public to attend the Third Annual Momentia Celebration on Saturday, Nov. 12 from 4 to 6 p.m. at the Royal Room (5000 Rainier Ave. S). Momentia Celebration is a free event for people living with memory loss, their friends and family, and for all who support a dementia-friendly community.

Join us for a no-host happy hour, door prizes, music, and dance moves led by Southeast Seattle Senior Center Fitness Coordinator Mark Bryant, and enjoy a brief presentation on Southeast Seattle memory loss programs. Momentia Celebration is presented by the Southeast Seattle Momentia Committee with support from Seattle Parks and Recreation, Southeast Seattle Senior Center, Full Life Care, and Elderwise.

Over three years ago, a group of people living with memory loss, and their care partners, gathered to give input and share bold ideas for innovative new memory loss programs in Seattle. This process was supported by Seattle Parks and Recreation’s Lifelong Recreation, the Southeast Seattle Senior Center, Full Life Care, and Elderwise. The group came up with and piloted programs such as a dementia-friendly drum circle, a gardening program, and the Momentia Celebration. Three years later, these programs continue, and along with the Alzheimer’s Café at the Columbia City Tutta Bella, they offer Southeast Seattle residents living with memory loss meaningful ways to connect in the community.
