Memories in the Making®

Memories in the Making® is a unique fine arts program for individuals with Alzheimer’s disease or related dementia. Using an “inspiration” picture, the person with dementia is asked to paint their impression of the inspiration, but what happens next is the real purpose of the program. Trained volunteers take the comments, cues and memories shared, to create the story that is paired with the artwork. Memories in the Making® has the potential to awaken those moments, thought to be lost, and bring them to life through the hand and memory of the artist.
