JFCS’ Creative Aging Program’s April Memory Café to Feature The Sunshine Singers
April 5, 2018 @ 10:00 am - 11:30 amFree
Jewish Family & Children’s Service is pleased to announce its April Memory Café will feature an interactive sing-along with the JFCS Senior Chorus, The Sunshine Singers, at Beth El Congregation, 1118 W. Glendale Avenue in Phoenix on Thursday, April 5, 2018 from 10 to 11:30 am.
The Sunshine Singers, who are part of the Creative Aging program of JFCS, have been rehearsing together for several months, led by the talented Daniel Kurek. Dan has nearly 40 years of performance and teaching experience with opera, musical theatre and liturgical music. He has been the choir director at Temple Chai in north Phoenix for nine years. The only stipulation to participate in the group is that each person is at least 60 and loves to sing.
The Café is a meeting place for those with changes in their thinking or memory, mild cognitive impairment or dementia due to Alzheimer’s disease or a related disorder, along with their care partners. Offered on the first Thursday of the month, each Café has a new theme and includes meaningful, fun activities to engage the participants and stimulate their minds and bodies. Socialization is a key component to the cafés, as they are meant to be a place to relax, meet others and have fun in a nurturing and accepting environment.
