Art directly engages the imagination, focusing on capacities and strengths not directly impacted by one’s age or ability to remember. Interacting with and creating art can help people with dementia access long-term memories while fully engaging in the present moment.
This program collaboration between CJE and The Art Institute of Chicago is designed for seniors (with and without dementia) and their caregivers or friends. Through observing, discussing and creating art, partners will discover an alternative means of communication, reflecting on life experiences while strengthening relationships today.
Please call CJE SeniorLife at (773) 508-1073 to register.
