Memories in the Making®


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.

1st and 3rd Fridays of each month from 10:00 - 11:30am
Where: Alzheimer's Association: 6632 Convoy Court, San Diego, CA 92111

For more information and to reserve your spot, please contact Shannon Novosel at 858.966.3292 or
