I Remember Better When I Paint: Dementia & Art 

We wanted to share this fantastic video as an example of how art is making an impact for individuals living with a variety of dementias in various stages of the disease.

Engaging with art through dialogue and painting allows people to tap into their non-verbal, emotional side and make meaning in the moment. This aliveness and focus is really at the core of quality of life.
