Memories in the Making – Alzheimer’s Association Oregon Chapter


Memories in the Making is a unique fine arts program for people with Alzheimer’s disease and other dementias. The program’s creative process provides a safe and validating environment for artistic expression, resulting in a creative and non-verbal way to communicate and capture precious moments through art. The Memories in the Making program is much more than a traditional arts and crafts class or hobby activity; it has been proven to be beneficial and therapeutic, and can stimulate the brains of persons with dementia. In this group, the creative process and the stories that evolve through it are as important and meaningful as the art work itself. The group is facilitated by professional artists and trained volunteers.
