Memory Maker Project- Autumn Program
October 18, 2017 @ 2:30 pm - 3:30 pm
“”What does the fall time remind you of?” an older man living with memory loss was asked. He had trouble finding his words, but was gently encouraged to keep going. “Diversity of the leaves….like diversity of people.”
Later, he was asked about his painting. He gestured to the veins in his hand, then to the veins in the leaf. “We’re all the same,” he said.
Christina and Kim started the Memory Maker Project to open up those doors and makes art and cultural programs accessible to people living with memory loss. We bring joy into their lives through respectful interactions, threading conversations between the arts and our participants’ personal stories. We meet people where they are—we don’t see a patient or a disease; we see a vibrant person with as much to offer us as we can offer them.”
The Memory Maker Project will be hosting an Autumn event at Beechtree on October 18th from 2:30-3:30pm
