One of the most challenging aspects of Alzheimer’s disease is the
gradual loss of a person’s self-identity. Ideally, memory care providers
should offer individuals the means to reconnect with their innermost selves
through art therapy. Art therapy is more than a soothing escape for seniors;
it provides the intellectual and emotional stimulation that seniors with
Alzheimer’s need to live life well.
Watch this video to learn more about the benefits of art therapy for seniors
with Alzheimer’s. It features a program offered at the Museum of
Modern Art in New York. Once per week, a museum educator takes a group
of seniors with early stage dementia on a tour of the collection.
