Memory Themed Art Exhibit
An art exhibit in Kitchener, Canada will open on January 18th to support the Alzheimer Society of Kitchener-Waterloo. The exhibit features several paintings that hope to connect with patients’ memories and inspire these individuals to pursue their own art forms. This idea is based on recent research found that people with dementia dementia were often better able to communicate through creative art activities because it occurs in a different part of the brain. The Alzheimer Society also offers a program called “Gather in the Gallery,” where older adults and their caregivers visit museums to view and discuss artwork and eventually create their own pieces.
