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.")
Carolyn Halpin-Healy 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.
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?
