Goodwin House was the site of a Stronger Memory presentation on Sept. 17 as part of Alzheimer’s Awareness Month and its brain health programs. Goodwin House Inc. has partnered with George Mason University to study the impact of the Stronger Memory program on the memory, cognition, and life satisfaction of participants. According to the Alexandria Gazette Packet, "The Stronger Memory program consists of three basic activities: writing, reading aloud, and simple math exercises. The program was started in 2011 by Goodwin House CEO Rob Liebreich, a featured speaker at the event, to help his mother address the cognitive decline. Since that time, Stronger Memory has gained a loyal following and yielded positive results." As per Alexandria Gazette Packet, "Residents of all three Goodwin House affiliates — Goodwin House Alexandria, Goodwin House Bailey’s Crossroads and Goodwin House At Home — in addition to members of the Village to Village Network, local nonprofit organizations, local faith organizations, and friends and family members have participated in Stronger Memory since its initial pilot in the fall of 2020."
