Social distancing for seniors will likely be a prudent recommendation for many months. Alzheimer’s Family Center (AFC) has created a comprehensive brain-engaging Zoom Activities Program (ZAP) for anyone with internet access and a tablet, smartphone or laptop who wants to:
- Increase socialization
- Decrease isolation and loneliness
- Use and maintain cognition and communication skills
- Improve overall mood, focus and concentration
ZAP offers exciting activities including: chair exercise, armchair travel around the world and to local attractions in Orange County, musical fun and music history, crafts and creative arts, trivia and other brain games, art appreciation, Spanish and Vietnamese conversations, meditation and relaxation therapy, discussions about current events and famous historical events, PT and OT maintenance, special events with surprise guests, and more!
Our interactive ZAP sessions are led by AFC’s professional activities staff, run 40 minutes each, Monday through Friday, start at 9 am and end at 5 pm. Your subscription provides unlimited access for your loved one throughout the day, so they can join as often as they would like.
The subscription fee is only $49.99 per family per month.
