Alzheimer’s & Art Therapy
De : AlzheimersWeekly | Créé le : 29 nov. 2009
Dementias such as Alzheimer’s present a unique opportunity for therapy through the arts. As people descend into Alzheimer’s, there is often a heightened sense of creativity and expression through the arts, as they lose their more conventional means of communicating. Also, art does not need short-term memory. View this video about the Alzheimer’s art program at the Museum of Modern Art.
