Bettina commented on Caregiving Is an Art

Hi all!
Jennie Smith-Peers  -
Thanks for telling us about the National Center For Creative Aging and their Creative Caregiving Guide. Are you affiliated with them? A friend is a museum curator and she pointed me to the great work that Arts and Minds is doing, which lead to my sharing it in a research post. By coincidence the Director of Arts and Minds, Carolyn Halpin-Healy, was invited by the OI team to the NYC Dementia Workshop. I was there as a facilitator and we were on the same team! (If you have time check out the team's idea, "Groceries For Care.")

Hi Carolyn. Arts and Minds has come up in conversation in the comments here. Any thoughts/feedback on this Idea? It was developed at the Washington, DC OpenIDEO Dementia Workshop, last week.

Here is a link to the Research Post I shared re: Arts and Minds. https://challenges.openideo.com/challenge/caregiving-dementia/research/arts-and-minds (Mariah, from this Idea, posted a comment there too.)

Thanks for the info Sarah.
Do you envision a certification of some sort for the "master caregiver" in this program, as a master gardener has?

What a wonderful FB post! It makes me wonder whether in addition to sharing art caregivers will also use this as a platform to share stories as Heather did. Exciting stuff!

I can share the idea and FB prototype with some artists. Not sure how many are caregiving or have done so in the past, but I believe some may have been in this role. I can send them the link to the idea here. How would they share their work if they would like to post it?
