The Arts as Therapy for Advanced Alzheimer's Patients

Everyone interprets art differently, especially so by people with dementia according to Dr. John Zeisel's new book, I'm Still Here: A New Philosophy of Alzheimer's Care. And that's not a bad thing at all, says Zeisel, as dementia patients often notice aspects of artwork that others miss. Viewing art is just one activity Zeisel advocates for people with dementia; helping with safe kitchen projects and dancing also keep people enjoying life even while dealing with dementia.
