The Longest Day: Alzheimer's Education & Awareness

The “Longest Day” is also known as the summer solstice and is the one day out of the year that has the most daylight within a 24-hour time-span. On June 21, people from across the world will fight the darkness of Alzheimer’s through education and increased community awareness. Presbyterian Senior Living (PSL) is proud to join in this partnership with the Alzheimer’s Association and provide day-long education and events through PSL’s Thrive Wellness.

PSL’s Thrive Wellness promotes a culture of wellness, engagement, and purposeful living to empower all individuals to live their best lives. This is not a calendar of activities. This is a day to bring focus to our collective efforts to live, and experience life along six dimensions of wellness and purposeful living.

Drop in for one or all of the below sessions! No registration required unless otherwise noted. Cameras and microphones are not needed to attend these webinars.

Our broadcast will begin at 8 am on Tuesday, June 21.
