Idlewild Health Walks

Idlewild Health Walks
RSVP and Alzheimer's Association Volunteers ready to walk at Idlewild Park.

The Sandord Center for Aging, Retired and Senior Volunteer Program has partnered with the Alzheimer's Association in a walking program for people living with dementia.

The Idlewild Health Walks give people a chance to get outside and enjoy the weather in a safe environment supported by RSVP volunteers. Project Director for Volunteer Programs, Jennifer Baker, said 14 volunteers have registered to support the program, which begins in May and continues through December 27th, 2016. The program will be held every other Tuesday, 10-11 a.m.

"The walk will begin and end at the Truckee Meadows Parks Foundation Office in Idlewild Park," Baker said. The walks are free for participants and their caregivers. The twenty interpretive walks are specifically designed for individuals with dementia and will be an extension of the Discover Your Parks program.

"The goal is to get citizens outdoors exploring and stewarding our local parks," she said. "These walks will give participants an opportunity to learn about the natural world through an experimental exploration of seasonal change along the Truckee River."

The walks will focus on phenology, which is the study of seasonal change in relation to plant and animal life.

People interested in participating in the program can call 775-784-1807 for more details.
