A Bit About Me
It would be a pleasure to be your Art & Memory Care Instructor. I have experience doing holistic art with residents in assisted living communities. This certification program absolutely benefits the activity profession!
What inspired me to sign up for the Art & Memory Care Certification™ Program is being able to help those with disabilities express their self. I always say, if I leave work knowing that I've made someone smile, it was a good day. This includes family members, too. And I knew this program could help me do that and more. I could bring a smile to their face and see them be proud of the art they did and show it off.
I believe the mind is hard to understand, especially for those with Dementia. It's even more difficult. As their disease progresses, art can make them shine in many ways. The Art & Memory Care Certification™ program shows you how to use art to identify what residents are crying out from the inside. The program also helps you realize that no matter the art a resident creates, good or bad, it can be a milestone for them.
Art can establish breakthroughs!
I know I can help you to achieve results with residents, too! I look forward to seeing you do this by joining my class.
