“Painting’s not important. The important thing is keeping busy.” ~ Grandma Moses
Painting is a proven therapy for those with Memory Impairments such as Alzheimer’s and Dementia; however, what you paint is important to the therapy. Here at The Rose of Poway, we have residents pick a picture that speaks to them. Painting juvenile clip art is not appropriate, nor is it enjoyed by our seniors. Generally they will choose pictures of scenery and flowers. Art therapy is just one of the many activities we engage our residents in to keep them stimulated.
