SUPPORT FOR OLDER ADULTS WITH MEMORY LOSS AND THEIR FAMILIES

Using Art to Explain Alzheimer’s to Children

“Why Can’t Grandma Remember My Name?” is a book by Kent L. Karosen, CEO of the Fisher Center for Alzheimer s Research Foundation. In this 4 minute video, see how and why Karosen uses art produced by children alongside art produced by Alzheimer’s patients to explain Alzheimer’s disease to children in a digestible way.

In addition to elevating awareness about the multigenerational effectiveness of art therapy, Karosen’s book also raises funds for Alzheimer’s Research, visit his foundation’s website HERE for more information.

At OPICA we use Art Therapy as part of our broad range of cognitive stimulation programs for adults challenged by memory loss. Click HERE to learn more about our programs and services.
