The Magic of Creative Arts Therapy

Dementia Spring Recognizes Creative Art Therapists in March

Creative arts therapies have been shown to have tremendous benefits on managing the symptoms of dementia. Music, art and dance therapies are a few types of creative arts therapies that have positive impacts on people living with dementia who participate in them. Members of Dementia Spring’s artist network have seen these significant impacts firsthand. 

Donna Newman-Bluestein of Dance for Connection shares how movement therapy encourages expression and communication for those who otherwise may struggle to do so. When Donna spoke with us here at Dementia Spring, she shared how people living with dementia are less constricted by their inhibitions, making them a perfect fit for dance movement therapy. 

Karla Wilson of Music Therapy at Home provides music therapy in an accessible way. Similar to Donna, she shared the magical impact of music therapy and it’s way of opening lines of communication. Anecdotes of non-verbal individuals finding their voices through song are the norm for music therapists like Karla. 
This month, Dementia Spring wants to show appreciation and recognition to all the creative arts therapists who work to improve the quality of life for people living with dementia and their care partners.
