The program is specifically for individuals with Parkinson’s disease and/or memory issues. It is sponsored by Sun Lakes Creative Engagement Partners, and includes members from Neighbors Who Care, Hospice of the Valley, Visiting Angels, and The Perfect Place. The program is supported by various organizations like Banner Alzheimer’s Institute.
