In addition to engaging programming, the Wellness Academy offers activities for family members and care providers to share their experiences and support one another. The Wellness Academy provides participants with opportunities for personal growth and discovery through creative activities, learning, artistic expression, discussion, intergenerational interaction, exercise and enjoyment.
