SPARK! is a monthly program designed for people living with memory loss and their care partners. While everyone is welcome, the program is intended for those living with a care partner. If you are a care facility with a group of residents living with memory loss and have staff available to assist them on outings, we would love to have you schedule a SPARK! tour.
SPARK! tours can be scheduled for groups of up to 8 memory loss guests and appropriate staff (minimum of 2 staff members).
Typically participants are in the middle stages of memory loss, but anyone who would like to come is welcome.
SPARK! tours must be booked a minimum of three weeks in advance.
SPARK! tours are FREE thanks to support from Winona Health.
