Fit and Fun for Free at People Plus in January

If you made a New Year’s resolution to “pick up the pace” of your personal fitness, or try a new activity, why not come to People Plus and start something new at no cost? Try any one (or more) of our offerings during January for Free!

Executive Director Stacy Frizzle explains, “this is more about getting new folks into new experiences,” she said, “we’re confident if they try it, they’ll like it!” The Center routinely offers more than a dozen fitness classes each week, varying from Table Tennis (free all the time!) to Tai Chi. All of our instructor led courses are available to members for a cost of only $5 a session. And the Center has over a dozen clubs that meet regularly to write, play a game, converse in a different language and more!
“The goal is to get folks engaged,” Frizzle explained, “This offer is for new attendees to try classes/clubs and see if they like it. We’re confident they will. There is no better investment than the one we all make in our own personal health. What a way to start the New Year!”

This offer is free and open to the public. Call the Center at 729-0757 if you have questions or want to sign up or visit www.peopleplusmaine.org for a full list of activities.

Memory Enhancment Class

People Plus and Mid Coast–Parkview Health have partnered to offer a new Memory Enhancement Class focused on early stage memory loss. The ideal participant is experiencing mild memory loss, and may or may not have been diagnosed with early stage dementia or mild cognitive impairment. The purpose of the class is to provide education, support, and strategies for living optimally.
Each participant is required to bring a support person for several reasons: a) to help the participant identify how the information can be applied to daily living, b) to practice newly learned skills with the participant, c) to discuss and reinforce new information with the participant, and d) to help “fill in the blanks” if information is forgotten.

The five-week Saturday class is limited to eight participants and their support person. It will run from Saturday, Jan. 11 – Feb. 15, 2020 (no class Feb. 1) from 9:30 – 11:30 am at the People Plus Center, 35 Union Street. Cost is $10 per participant/support person totaling $50 for each pair.

Schedule of classes includes:
Session #1, Jan. 11 – Understanding Alzheimer’s and Dementia, presented by The Alzheimer’s Association and facilitated by Kim Watson, MS, SLP, MLNHA, Administrator, Mid Coast Senior Health.
Session #2, Jan. 18 – Brain Health, presented by Mid Coast Center for Community Health & Wellness and facilitated by Cate Parker, MS, RN, CEP, Director of Mid Coast Center for Community Health & Wellness.
Session #3, Jan. 25 – Effective Strategies for Communication and Daily Living, presented by Kim Watson, MS, SLP, MLNHA, and Lisa Clark, OTR with Mid Coast Senior Health.

People Plus Acoustic Music Club - NEW

We be “jammin” at People Plus! If you play an instrument at an intermediate or better level and want to jam with some new friends come join the fun at People Plus with this new club!

Bring your own instrument, be able to share a few songs and know basic chords. The club will be playing mostly folk, blues, bluegrass and other acoustic music in a song circle format where everyone gets a turn to share a song, with others joining in.

Open to current People Plus members and community members 18 years or older and graduated high school. (People Plus membership is not required for your first few visits, but you will need to eventually become a member, only $30/year for Brunswick residents, $35 all others)!

This fun music club will be coordinated by Brunswick resident Jim Ru who plays a variety of instruments and has played in small informal groups, open mikes and house jams. Jim enjoys live acoustic music, especially when people just pull up a chair and share a song or two.
