Seattle Parks and partners offer recreation, volunteering opportunities for people with mild memory loss

People with mild memory loss are invited to join Seattle Parks and Recreation, the Alzheimer’s Association Western & Central Washington Chapter, the Phinney Ridge Association and the Greenwood Senior Center for a walk through the Woodland Park Zoo each Monday from July 15 through September 16. For more information and to register, please call 206-529-3868 or email lrhine@alz.org.

And Parks invites people with mild memory loss to give back to the community in a supportive group setting, helping package and sort food at Northwest Harvest’s Cherry Street Food Bank. The food bank on First Hill serves more than 5,000 people every week. The volunteer work (care partners are welcome but not required) takes place on the third Tuesday of every month. The next opportunities are July 16, August 13 and September 10. For more information and to register, please call Mari Becker at 206-684-4664 or email her at mari.becker@seattle.gov.

These series from Seattle Parks’ Lifelong Recreation Program give people with mild memory loss opportunities for regular exercise and places to build relationships.

Parks works in partnership with the Associated Recreation Council (ARC) to bring high-quality, accessible and affordable recreation opportunities to the people of Seattle. For more information on ARC, please see http://www.arcseattle.org/.
