The process is tailored to provide structure and support for the participant while at the same time allowing them to create their own message on the paper. It is not unusual for them to paint memories from long ago or something they can no longer find the words to express.
Groups of 5-10 individuals meet weekly in nursing homes, assisted living facilities and adult day programs to paint. Each group meets under the guidance of a Memories in the Making teacher specifically trained to work with individuals with memory loss and dementia.
