Marin's Favorite Social Club for Folks with Memory Loss

Lots of happy activity in and around Senior Access.

Introducing our new CGO

Hi,

 

My name is Dana Pepp and I am Senior Access’ new Chief Growth Officer (CGO).  I am so happy to be part of the Senior Access team!

 

My mission and role are to help Senior Access to grow, to ensure that every family touched by dementia will have access to Senior Access.

 

We plan to expand our services:  social day programs for seniors with dementia (both outings and the Club), community brain fitness classes, memory screenings (in English and Spanish), caregiver respite and a caregiver support groups.

 

We invite you to be a part of our Growth Campaign. In order to increase our outreach, re-brand and provide more significant financial aid to families, we are looking to our donors, foundations, partnerships and grants for financial support.

 

Please join us our Growth Campaign, so that every family touched by dementia will have the opportunity to join the Senior Access family.

 

We’d like to hear your thoughts and receive your support and your donations!

 

Together, we will make Senior Access accessible to all families touched by dementia.

 

Warmly,

 

Dana Pepp

Chief Growth Officer

 

P.S. I look forward to hearing from you!  Please feel free to contact me via email (dpepp@senioraccess.org) or phone (415.491.2500, ext. 110 or direct line:  415-526-0050).

 


Latino Senior Outreach

Senior Access is pleased to share that we received a grant from the Alzheimers Foundation of America (AFA) to outreach and engage Latino seniors in Marin.


The Senior Access AFA team, led by Cynthia Seymour, is training local bilingual, bicultural community members to facilitate memory wellness classes, brain fitness and memory screenings throughout Marin.  Our classes and screenings are all conducted  in Spanish and will raise awareness in the Latino community about memory care and memory loss.   We plan to continue these efforts to reach all communities throughout Marin.


This program was funded by the Alzheimer’s Foundation of America (AFA). 


Wish Jim Happy 70th Birthday
