Art Collection: An Exploration of People with Dementia Expressing Themselves Creatively

“Like all of us, when seniors are engaged in creative activities, they become involved in self-exploration that brings joy and satisfaction, even if only for fleeting moments.” – From the DVD

Based on the work of Dr. Dalia Gottlieb-Tanaka (The Society for the Arts in Dementia Care), this DVD demonstrates the beneficial outcomes of engaging older adults with dementia in creative activities. Through a virtual exhibit of artwork collected from older adults with dementia over a span of six years, the DVD gives a voice to persons with dementia, and shows how creative expression can continue to thrive when encouraged.

The DVD also provides a brief profile of four diverse artists living and creating with dementia. Inspiring and empowering, this “art collection” will give hope to family and professional caregivers alike.
