Family First recently visited the Town of Huntington Adult Day Program to offer participants fun activities to promote cognitive health. Activities included sing-alongs, word games, memory exercises, motor skill challenges, and trivia.
Thanks to Amy and Rachael, we were able to offer participants an afternoon of fun and laughter!
Featured right are some of the pictures that participants drew with their non-dominant hand. Using your opposite hand is in fact a great way to exercise your mind!
