Triple-R at Home

TRIPLE-R AT HOME: FUN ONLINE SOCIAL ACTIVITIES AND EXERCISE FOR PEOPLE WITH DEMENTIA

Staying at home is getting old for everyone! Do you have a family member with dementia who could benefit from a little more fun? Help is on its way! The City of Sacramento's Older Adult Services division operates Triple-R Adult Day Centers which provide socialization, recreation, and personal care for seniors with dementia while their family caregivers take a break or go to work. Because of COVID-19, Triple-R has moved its social activities online, providing both live and “on demand” virtual opportunities for people with dementia. It's a way for people to engage with other community members, have some fun and get some exercise, all in the comfort and safety of their own home or assisted living facility.

Come experience the camaraderie of Triple-R by participating in our virtual meetups where we play games, laugh, exercise and have fun together. To see a sample of the type of activities offered, view the schedule for October 2020 below.
