National Memory Screening Day – November 15
Through the Alzheimer’s Foundation of America, Vineyard Bluffton will offer memory screening to local community members. AFA’s National Memory Screening Program provides free, confidential memory screenings administered by healthcare professionals. Think of a memory screening as a “healthy brain check-up.” We’ll give you a short 10-minute examine and let you know if you should consider a more comprehensive medical evaluation.
Memory screenings are perfect for caregivers or those with aging parents that would like a free and easy check-up on memory-related conditions.
- Friday, November 15, 2019, 9:30 am – 4 pm at the Vineyard Bluffton Information Center
- Please contact us to RSVP; we have appointments available all-day

Senior Ukulele Workshop – November 23
Seniors, come learn a new skill! Let’s play the ukulele together. Southern Gratitude, a local Bluegrass and Americana band, will lead a Saturday Ukulele Workshop at the Vineyard Bluffton Information Center. We’ll provide the ukuleles; participants will learn 5 – 6 songs during the one-hour lesson.
Music therapy is a part of our innovative activity calendar, as learning new skills and instruments can boost cognitive development. We’re excited to offer this fun and unique event to local seniors in the area! Families of participants are welcome to stay and watch as Southern Gratitude will play a few songs before and after the lesson.
- Saturday, November 23, 2019, 10 – 11:30 am at Vineyard Bluffton Information Center
- We have limited spots available; please contact us to RSVP.

Walk to End Alzheimer’s
Our tribe had a great time at the Alzheimer’s Association Walk to End Alzheimer’s. This important event raises funds and awareness for a cause near and dear to Vineyard Bluffton’s heart, as well as serves our Valeo Americas Senior mantra to Help Others. Thank you to all the local community members who participated!
Fashion for a Cause
Our Sip-and-Shop Fashion boutique pop-up was a fabulous success. We appreciate all the ladies who came to meet with our stylist and purchase new items to support local Alzheimer’s organizations.
Happy Start to the Holidays!
