  2. MEMORIES IN THE MAKING

    MEMORIES IN THE MAKING

    $39.95

    The process of creating art, or even just viewing art, can have a therapeutic effect on Alzheimer's patients. Individuals with dementia often exhibit anxiety, aggression, agitation, and apathy. We have seen time and time again that art has a calming effect on these behaviors. Moreover, creating art encourages storytelling and human interaction, resulting in the artist's capacity to come alive. Residents in care facilities who refuse to participate in other structured activities, such as reminiscence, have actively engaged in MIM.
    From the introduction

    La Doris "Sam" Heinly wrote the Memories in the Making (MIM) book to memorialize the best practices of talented art facilitators across the country, and to provide a framework for expanding the program to new locations. It has been recognized nationally as a model for dementia care. The book is based on over twenty years of experience with the MIM program, and her own experiences as an art facilitator.
