This project pulls together extensive existing programming for people with Alzheimer’s and Parkinson’s—arts, exercise, a speaker series, nutrition, etc.—into one, holistic care coordination program specific to neurodegenerative diseases. The service will provide free transportation and recruit more participants from the surrounding region. The program will serve as a model for other Ys throughout the region to replicate.
