- Alzheimer’s Walk: Step Forward. Give Hope.
We all experience stress in our lives, and everyone reacts to and copes with stress in their own way. What is stressful for one person may not be stressful for someone else. CALM is a method used to minimize stress, anxiety and depression.
Spend more time creating than consuming. If you are struggling today try to create a new normal until this passes.
Try immediate problem-solving to work on calming down the emotional response in your body. Challenge yourself to focus on what you can control.
Lean in with curiosity to learn. Go to the greater experience of what you are going through.
Move forward by taking incremental steps forward daily. Recreate actions daily that are normal to you. Move your body every day.
From Our Executive Director:
Out of an abundance of caution and consideration of CDC guidelines related to this virus and the population we serve, the ADAW has made the decision to review per county what programs will be in-person and online. Please see our available programs at the bottom of this column.
