Get out and get active while socializing with others going through similar life journeys with our two Marquette based social engagement programs!


LIVEWISE is an eight week program that builds confidence and hope for individuals who are living with Early-Stage Alzheimer’s disease, dementia or other memory impairments and their care partners. The program in collaboration with the YMCA of Marquette County provides learning strategies and techniques to take charge of your health. LIVEWISE members will also have an opportunity to connect with others who are experiencing life memory impairments.

LIVEWISE focuses on:

  • Healthy eating and exercising

  • Managing stress and understanding grief

  • Understanding Alzheimer's and dementia
  • Care partner support and community resources
  • Improving and maintaining quality of life

Social Engagement Program

The Social Engagement Program is designed for individuals in the early to middle stages of memory loss and their care partners with a special focus on veterans living with memory loss. Participants meet to engage in various activities and community outings in and around Marquette county that promote cognitive, physical and social simulation through trips to various museums, fishing sites, art galleries and community events.
