For most people with dementia the desire to express thoughts and feelings remains active far longer than the ability to do so. Communication impairment is a common early concern in dementia and Alzheimer’s disease. At OPICA, we understand that art is a personal expression and that producing art helps people with dementia recognize that their expressions are still valuable to others. Art therapy provides significant rewards to persons at all stages of dementia.

Help OPICA raise awareness about our many programs that foster dignity for families dealing with memory loss by sharing this page on social media below.
