Seniors with cognitive impairment, such as dementia or early stage Alzheimer’s disease, are invited to join a new program designed to improve their quality of life. With a focus on cognitive, physical and emotional health, Minds in Motion uses themed programs, brain games, light exercise, interaction and a communal meal to engage participants’ five senses. The Center for Alzheimer’s Disease and Related Disorders at Southern Illinois University Medicine is coordinating the program, funded by the Community Foundation for the Land of Lincoln King’s Daughters Organization Blackstock Fund.
Denim & Diamonds provides the seed funds for critical and innovative cancer research, compassionate patient programs and further address the growing needs of our patient population.
The members of the Cancer Care Teams of Simmons Cancer Institute at SIU (SCI) view the physical aspect of cancer treatment as only part of our approach to care. Our commitment to patients is to heal the whole person -- not just treat the disease.
With our unique approach, we aim to fight cancer on all fronts and with every available resource.
