Each week clients have two hours of Art Therapy on Thursdays. Research shows tremendous benefits of art therapy with Alzheimer's and Dementia patients.
Recently, Birmingham Southern College partnered with McCoy and our art therapist Millie Dawson-Hardy for a program called Bringing Art to Life. Art to Life is a service-learning course sponsored by Birmingham-Southern College in collaboration with Cognitive Dynamics Foundation in Tuscaloosa, AL.
The purpose is to improve quality of life for persons with Alzheimer’s disease and other causes of dementia and their families and caregivers through art therapy and life story preservation. For more information visit www.cognitivedynamics.org!
