Memories in the Making® is a unique program for individuals with Alzheimer's disease and related dementias to express themselves through art. Through the creative process of painting, participants are able to communicate, offering us the essence of themselves.
The process is tailored to provide structure and support for participants, while at the same time allowing them to create their own message on paper. It is not unusual for participants to paint memories from long ago or something they can no longer find the words to express.
When: 1st and 3rd Fridays of each month from 10:00 - 11:30am
Where: Alzheimer's Association: 6632 Convoy Court, San Diego, CA 92111
The Memories in the Making® class offered at the Chapter office is designed for persons with dementia and their care partner or family member to enjoy together. Participating artists should be escorted by a care partner or family member.

Adult Day Centers
Ever wonder where you can take your loved one for activities or to give yourself a break from caregiving? Adult Day Centers are designed to meet the needs of individuals with dementia and to support their strengths, abilities and independence. Centers typically have staffed activities such as music and exercise programs, and discussion groups. Most centers are open from early morning to early afternoon. Some have extended or weekend hours. Some centers even offer pick-up and drop-off transportation services, while others provide transportation for outings and medical appointments.
