BACS Brain Boost-to-Go chronicles the efforts of the Bay Area Community Services (BACS) organization to make the early support and educational benefits of early memory loss programs accessible to all. We will explore purpose, design, strategies, and outcomes of this ongoing outreach to pre-need older adults.

Participants in this web seminar will:

  • Receive information on  early memory loss programs
  • Learn  strategies for tailoring curricula to different educational/cultural/experiential levels
  • Familiarize themselves with resources for outreach and curriculum design.
  • Earn one hour of  *free* continuing education credit by attending the event and completing a CEU survey

Presenters:

Roberta Tracy has managed programs in a variety of settings serving chronically ill, homeless, and frail elderly populations. 2012 marked two major milestones: seven years as Program Director for BACS Adult Day Care in Oakland and  2 ½ years coordinating BACS BrainBoost in Alameda County, California.
Carol Kehoe has used her lifetime teaching credential to develop many essential senior programs throughout the East Bay and volunteer extensively with the Alzheimer’s Association. In 2009, she launched the original local BrainBoost at North Berkeley Senior Center, one of the few ongoing early memory loss programs in the Bay Area.
