A New Way of Looking at Memory Loss

For the person affected by memory loss, caregivers, loved ones and friends.
This workshop will help us discover a more positive way of looking at memory loss
to inspire fresh new ideas for uplifting moments together.
Wednesday, April 12th—1-3 pm
Lenox Community Center

This workshop offers an interactive experience as we look at pictures that reveal a variety of creative engagement for a person affected by memory loss and for creating a experience with caregivers.We will explore the concept of personhood and holistic approaches that spark inspiration, renew hope, expand well being and bring forth unique artistic expressions (paintings, poetry, art conversations, legacy books) from adults participating in dementia-specific museum and art-making programs.

We will learn how to create an engaging and supportive environment for people affected by dementia and discuss activities such as interactive art-making, at home museum visits, iconic movie clips to prompt reminiscence and opinion,
poetry, art journaling, bookmaking, and
community events.

Worshop facilitator Peggy Cahill holds a Masters of Education, directed the Artists for Alzheimer's Museum Network and developed four new museum programs for older adults with memory loss.

The event is FREE and everyone is welcome!Limited to the first 30 people—call 637-5535 to register
