Elder Rehab with Dr. Sharon Arkin
Elder Rehab is a research-tested physical, mental, and social stimulation program, developed by psychologist, Sharon Arkin. A senior, memory-impaired participant will be partnered with a U of A volunteer “Personal Trainer” who will supervise the participant in physical fitness workouts and engage in memory and language stimulation.
Both participants and family members leave having a better mood and clearer mind. This program allows memory impaired elders the chance to interact with young, vibrant college students while improving their physical and mental capabilities.
