Upcoming Programs and Resources for Caregivers


Spring is almost here, and this is a great time to get involved with community programs and events! Below are just a few of the events coming up this spring. 

Kids and horses logo

Kids & Horses partners with Connected Horse® to offer powerful workshops to individuals with memory loss and their care partners. These workshops provide the opportunity for people living with memory loss and their care partners to be together as they experience non riding activities with horses. Based on research conducted at UC Davis and Stanford Universities, these workshops resulted in significant improvement in mood, increased positive perception of social support, and greater awareness and appreciation of the relationship between the person with memory loss and their care partner.

Workshops are 2.5 hours, once a week for three consecutive weeks. It is requested that you attend all three sessions. Prior experience with horses is not necessary. Participants engage with horses from the ground, there is no riding. Participants must be ambulatory and willing to participate as a pair in the workshop.


Session 1 is May 4, 11 and 18 (9:00-11:30 a.m.)

Session 2 is June 1, 8 and 15 (9:00-11:30 a.m.)
