What is the best way to measure our success in the Smile Brain Program? We have experimented with the Smile Brain Program for over a year. Thirty-six participants have joined it with joy.
Here are some happy comments from some participants:
“I have felt overall good and physically energetic since I took part in this program!“
“This is the best experience I have ever had since I reached my 80’s. If I were not here, I would just be watching TV in my room and would be alone. I am very grateful to have joined the program here!“
“I sleep better and my blood pressure went down!“
“We went to the café and talked after the classroom. If I had not come here, I would have not known such a nice cafe!“
“I noticed that my attention and focus improved. I got the fog off my brain, so now I can remember things more easily. I also enjoy coming here every week and making new friends!”
Our facilitators have a few things to say too:
“It is always rewarding to work with participants. We can see the participants getting to know each other and becoming friends. They speak more and look happier together in the classroom.”
“I always wanted to increase happiness in people. Even when little, I wanted to aim for a society without dementia.”
With such thoughts, West Coast Healthy Memory Society facilitators practice their leadership every day.
