Whether we’re hanging out in Market Square Park, catching shows at Miller Outdoor Theatre or browsing the Urban Harvest Farmers Market, there’s nothing like summertime for our seniors in Houston, TX. In North Houston, residents of Proveer at Northgate usually enjoy getting out for excursions, but we’re enjoying this summer without leaving at all.
What is memory care?
Folks experiencing Alzheimer’s and other forms of dementia benefit from structure and engaging activities. Due to the overwhelming symptoms associated with dementia, those living with it can experience depression and feel withdrawn. Thanks to the meaningful programming at Proveer at Northgate, our residents receive the assistance they need and find purpose.

What activities are helpful for memory care?

Why is activity important for people with memory loss?
The Mayo Clinic recommends physical activity to help prevent memory loss and points out how leisurely pursuits can benefit older adults. Experts from Harvard Medical School conclude that exercise stimulates growth in the parts of the brain that control thinking and memory.
The creative process evokes memories and stirs emotions unlike any other pursuit. Art helps express feelings that we sometimes can’t find the words to say. The challenges of living with Alzheimer’s and dementia can be faced through adaptation. With the commitment of Proveer at Northgate, your loved one’s life can have meaning and purpose.
