Monday, June 15th

Today’s elderly, especially those experiencing dementia and Alzheimer’s, are often isolated in nursing homes or segregated in elder-care settings, making the final years of life feel lonely and devoid of meaning.

Rooted in 25 years of research, these new techniques draw on core creative exercises.
