Seniors from El Jimenado hold a Memory Workshop (25/10/2018)

The Department of Social Services and Equality of the City of Torre Pacheco in collaboration with Afal Cartagena and District, organizes after the success of past editions in Balsicas, San Cayetano and Dolores de Pacheco a Memory Workshop for Elderly in El Jimenado, which has the participation of 25 elderly people.

The Memory Workshop "Activate our Mind", takes place in the Multipurpose Center of El Jimenado, from 4:00 pm to 6:00 pm on Mondays, until November 26, with a total of 12 hours, divided into 6 sessions of 2 hours .

Many of the memory problems referred by the elderly are not related to the disease but to the lack of stimulation, attention and training, or affective and emotional problems;

Therefore, it is necessary to offer cognitive training programs that help to conserve abilities as long as possible in order to preserve autonomy, teaching concrete strategies to solve the most common daily forgetfulness in the elderly.

With the realization of this workshop, it is intended that participants know the basic functioning of memory, change attitudes and negative stereotypes about the irreversibility of alterations or memory deficits, and train them in strategies and specific techniques that can be transferred to the daily life, improve the mood and self-esteem of the participants and facilitate communication among its members.
