Jennie commented on Caregiving Is an Art

We could certainly pair this idea with the Creative Caregiving Guide - At the NCCA we are working hard to expand programs like Arts & Minds (MoMa also has some great resources around their museum based programming for people with memory loss) - the tricky part is money. Who will fund groups to allow them to do the training of the staff? Also, performance spaces have yet to be explored as dementia friendly spaces -- a great a new frontier! :-)

I am the executive director of the national center for creative aging. Carolyn is terrific. Glad to hear she was part of the NYC workshop.

Jennie commented on Remind - Music for Memory [Updated 12/26]

Hi there, I am not a part of this group, but I am Executive Director of the National Center for Creative Aging. We are a hub of information on arts and aging and there is a lot of research that points to the effectiveness of music for older adults such as this: https://bassconnections.duke.edu/project-teams/music-and-memory-aging-brain-2015-2016. Then there is the work of Nina Kraus (her site has tons of information about the research she has done around music and older adults): https://communication.northwestern.edu/faculty/NinaKraus

This is just the tip of what is out there. More resources can be found on our site: creativeaging.org
