SPARK! at the Paine

On the last Wednesday of each month, the Paine hosts a free program for people with memory loss and their care partners – SPARK! Together we enjoy activities related to art, gardens, and current events or exhibitions at the Paine.

SPARK! welcomes care partners to stay actively engaged in their communities while experiencing art, culture, and nature in a comfortable, small-group environment with specially trained staff and volunteers. The programs are not reminiscent, nor do they rely on recalling memories, but rather focus on observations, conversations, and creative experiences. SPARK! is not an acronym, it’s something that happens between care partners when involved in a stimulating and engaging experience – SPARKing a moment together – living in the moment.

RSVP is required. To RSVP, call 920-235-6903 ext. 41 or email
