Art Therapy for Alzheimer's

"A wealth of research has demonstrated that participation in creative activities promotes health and well being by stimulating curiosity and self-evaluation, by encouraging individuals to express themselves in meaningful ways, and by affirming their dignity and self-worth." So sure are the authors of this quote that they created The Society for the Arts in Dementia Care, which "aims to disseminate knowledge and establish ties with dementia care organisations worldwide, thereby improving the quality of life for people with dementia."

There is indeed a wealth of research, as well as anecdotal support for this Society's confidence in the positive affects that creative activity has for the person with dementia. The excerpt from the documentary film, I Remember Better When I Paint (below) demonstrates this affect; to actually see otherwise despondent people come to life, become active and social and verbal, is nothing short of amazing. Please take time to view this three minute clip, or come back to it when you have time. It will convince you that an art program will benefit the individual with Alzheimer's disease, possibly in a very big way. Read more on our website
