Mindful Care adult day services, a program of Elder’s First, recently celebrated its seventh year in partnership with New Vision Baptist Church, which provides the room for the program.

Mindful Care is a daily program for senior citizens with memory problems. The organization gives the seniors opportunities to be involved in stimulating and entertaining activities. This allows their in-home caregivers to continue working or enjoy some down time while knowing their relative is in safe hands.

Recently, the team at Mindful Care participated in the Alzheimer’s Walk and hosted trick-or-treating for a visiting preschool.

MTSU students majoring in Leisure Sport and Tourism Studies in the Department of Health and Human Performance also visited the program to play games and have lunch with the participants and staff.
