About this event:
Do you love someone who is challenged by Alzheimer’s or dementia? Do you put off visiting due to difficulties with a social connection?
This presentation explores the use of art as a visit activity. Art and creativity can act as a bridge for interpersonal communication. When done in small groups, it connects people in ways that verbal conversation alone cannot. Come learn simple activities that facilitate a social bond, stimulate memories and enhance emotional well-being.
Program location: Multipurpose Room, Lower Level
This program is presented by Terri Gregory, MAAT, Artist, Art Therapist and Expressive Arts Workshop Presenter.
