Avamere and Signature Healthcare at Home provide care for seniors, including those living with Alzheimer’s disease. Together, they’re proud to support research and programs for a cure while continuing to be there for those who live with Alzheimer’s.
About Memories in the Making®
Memories in the Making resulted from the exploration of the use of art as an alternative form of expression for people with dementia. While Alzheimer’s disease brings constant reminders of failures and losses, Memories in the Making provides a nonjudgmental environment in which participants can express their feelings. The focus is on the process rather than the product, allowing people with dementia to experience moments of joy and a renewed sense of accomplishment and self-respect.
