After a diagnosis of Alzheimer’s or another type of dementia, a person can continue to live a life filled with meaning. We provide access to the arts, increasing social engagement and personal expression while decreasing symptoms associated with memory loss, such as anxiety, apathy and depression.
We use a combination of ideas from experts in education, neurology, psychology and sociology to develop simple, interactive and meaningful artistic experiences for our friends, family and neighbors living with memory loss.
