1-2-3-Ways to Maintain Your Brain Power

Trying to maintain brain power as we age means we need to exercise safely and we need to try to read as long as we can. Laughing releases healthy chemicals into our systems and hiking in unfamiliar territory forces us to practice balance and forethought.

At Satori Pathway we educate families on the dementia journey. We also help assess the needs of the Alzheimer or dementia client. We will answer questions and try to create a care plan covered by Medicare.

Please call me …do you know what drink helps the brain because it helps the heart?

If a family member has Alzheimer’s’ remembering the old days is not as difficult as remembering how to bake Christmas cookies from a recipe.Losing the ability to process is baffling and frustrating for the person losing memory and for the family.Please call 779-537-5249-or commen.Satori Pathway is here for families with these issueelvess.

Blue Moon 1959-1963

My sister Brenda is 5yrs. older than me…we shared the dormer in our bungalow where you could hear her collections of Motown,the Beatles and classic rock.Music is embedded deep in our memory.One of the lasting abilities elderly patients have is to remember music and lyrics.They might not know their grandchild by name but they can sing a song and dance to a song from their 20′s and 30′s.Satori Pathway helps family and caregivers find a way to make a challenging day with a dementia patient fun and spontaneous at some point.
