My belief is that by exploring parts of self through creative activity, one can foster mindfulness, self-expression, cultivate personal strengths, and overcome barriers.
As a Memories in the Making art program facilitator, I work with individuals having Alzheimer’s disease or other related dementias. The MIM program is more than a traditional arts and crafts class or hobby activity. Individuals with early stages of dementia can express themselves through the creative art of painting. feel a sense of pleasure and accomplishment at creating something by engaging in the process of making art.
