The Friends Club is a successful program for older men afflicted with Alzheimer's disease. It meets four mornings each week (Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday, and Thursday) under the direction of a social worker. Club members are men in the early stages of Alzheimer's disease who experience memory loss and impaired judgment but are still able to independently care for personal needs, feed themselves, converse with others, and participate actively in club activities. A day at the Friends Club might include music, reminiscing, discussion of current events, an outing into the community, sports, games, educational programming and lunch.
