Memories in the Making and More For Professional Care Providers

April 30, 2015 @ 9:00 am - 5:00 pm

| FREE

Expression through art gives those struggling with memory loss a way to tell their stories. Even when words are no longer possible, they can express their feelings in the language of paint, music, or dance. Studies show that art activities reduce anxiety, stress and depression while improving motor skills, attention and focus. With our Memories in the Making workshop, professional care providers will learn to facilitate an art program for people with dementia. It will include practical tips and interactive activities.
PRE-REGISTRATION DEADLINE: APRIL 23, 2015
Registration: 9 ? 9:30 am; Program: 9:30 am ? 5:00 pm
Lunch and breaks included.
