Elderwise is partnering to create new programming for a dementia-friendly Seattle

Happy New Year!

We are excited to continue our work creating a dementia-friendly Seattle in 2014. Fostering our current community connections, and striving to form new relationships in order to create additional innovative programming, we are proud to be a part of a movement, Momentia, creating a new dementia story. This story is about connection and joy-filled moments for all. What will your part be in this new story?

Here are some of the ways Elderwise is partnering in the community to bring engaging and creative opportunities to people living with dementia:

Arts in the Park

Elderwise partners with Seattle Parks and Recreation to offer Watercolor Painting for people living with dementia and care partners. Tamara Keefe, Creative Programming Director at Elderwise, will facilitate this opportunity to discover the creative expression possible when one is fully present in the moment.

An opportunity for exploration in the park, socializing, and light refreshment is included. No artistic experience necessary; all materials provided.

Attend one or both sessions. Space is limited. To Register, call Cheryl at (206) 386-9106. Cost: $20.00 per session (no additional charge for care partners)
