Please join Gary Glazner, award winning New York based poet for this workshop on Creative Aging for Memory Cafes. Glazner shares from his over ten years work as founder of the Alzheimer’s Poetry Project. He gives examples of evidenced-based, dance, music, storytelling and visual arts programs highlighted in his book Dementia Arts: Celebrating Creativity in Elder Care, Health Professions Press, 2014.
This fun, high-energy workshop is packed-full of simple techniques to help create high-quality arts programs. The talk builds communication skills and helps increase the ability to connect with people living with memory loss.
