This is wonderful! As a part of the Alzheimer's Association Delaware Valley Chapter, I also do work for our constituents in the realms of community art and cultural events, opportunity to produce artwork with a variety of fine art materials, art therapy and a number of other social engagement activities.
The Atlantic has written several articles pertaining to art, Alzheimer's and related dementia. One of my favorite quotes from Richard Senelick (http://bit.ly/Us9FNx) was:
<blockquote>We must develop new "languages" to help those with cognitive disorders communicate with us, for they still have much to say. Dr. Potts asserts that people with Alzheimer's disease are still "rich" with thoughts and ideas, but need new channels to express those thoughts and ideas.</blockquote>
