Via Cognitive Health Opening New Center In Augusta

You may know it as the Jud C Hickey Center, which changed its name last year to Via Cognitive Health. Now, after serving the community in cramped quarters for years, they have a new state-of-the-art building. Via Cognitive Health According to their website: "Via Cognitive Health is a local, Augusta area non-profit organization that offers research-based day programming for individuals diagnosed with a cognitive decline disorder, like Alzheimer’s, to engage in mental and physical exercise, plus socialization, to promote a higher level of cognitive function for longer. The result? Our members and their care partners can maximize their quality of life post-diagnosis. They can live, play, and work more freely in our community as the Via Cognitive Health helps them navigate the disease." Music for Memories The center was built because of the generosity of the community. You have probably bought a ticket for the Music for Memories concert they do each year to raise money. The sponsors of that concert and many donors in the Augusta area have stepped up in a big way to make this new facility possible. Located on Washington Road in Augusta. As soon as you walk in, you'll see they obviously thought of everything to help their patients in this daycare center. They even have a putting green. Hey, it is Augusta! The new Via Cognitive Health Center is an excellent example of Augustans joining together to help their neighbors and the Augusta area community.
