I Remember Better When I Paint
A documentary by Eric Ellena and Berna Huebner
Initiatives that bring people with Alzheimer’s to art and creative workshops are producing remarkably positive results. Personal stories are featured including that of Rita Hayworth as told by her daughter, Yasmin Aga Khan. Dozens of day care centers, nursing homes and assisted-living facilities are using drawing, painting and museum visits as effective therapies, making it possible to improve the quality of life and restore a dialogue with caregivers. Scientists have discovered that the parts of the brain related to emotions and creativity are largely spared by the disease. Today experts recognize the benefits of these new approaches that dramatically change the way we look at Alzheimer’s.
