The team at Springwood Retirement is excited to host the 12th annual Memories in the Making Art Show, taking place on April 16, 206. The Memories in the Making® art program is offered by the Alzheimer’s Association and encourages people with Alzheimer’s disease and other forms of dementia to express themselves creatively. Through the program, members of our senior living community and the surrounding neighborhoods have painted their thoughts, emotions, and memories, sharing them with their loved ones in a thoughtful, beautiful way.

The Memories in the Making Program

The Alzheimer's Association believes that every individual should have the opportunity to express themselves throughout all seasons of life, and Alzheimer’s and other forms of dementia shouldn’t prevent expression. The Memories in the Making fine art program provides a safe, creative method for people to make their thoughts and emotions come to life in a visual format.

People with dementia may have lost the ability to use words, but their inner thoughts are still very much alive. The Memories in the Making program allows families and caregivers to continue getting to know loved ones who have Alzheimer's. The experience allows them to see the essence of who they are and continue communicating in a fun, visual, and beautiful way.
