The Art of Memory offers a meaningful way for people living with early-stage memory loss, including those living with Alzheimer’s and other types of dementia, and their care partners to connect with others at the YAM.
This program promotes connection, interaction, and companionship through viewing and discussing artwork and creating art in our studio. Many times, the bonds formed through this program last throughout the duration of the disease, creating additional support for all involved.
