I’m Still Here: Alzheimer’s and Art with Dr John Zeisel
June 28 @ 7:00 pm - 8:00 pm
“Alzheimer’s doesn’t take away memory, your memories are all in there. The part of the brain that’s damaged is the part that gives you access to memory. It’s as if you put the memories in the glove compartment and you lost the key and the art unlocked it.”
-Dr. John Zeisel, president of Hearthstone Alzheimer Care, and founder of the I’m Still Here® Foundation
Dr. John Zeisel, one of the earliest innovators of positive care for people living with Alzheimer’s, will discuss his I’m Still Here person-centered approach, his life’s work in environmental design and research, the world-wide impact of MoMA’s Meet Me project, and the encouraging changes occurring in the face of this devastating disease.
This event is generously supported by the Jewish Association on Aging.
The first of its kind in Pennsylvania, JAA’s AHAVA Memory Care Residence is one of only six I’m Still Here® Centers of Excellence, certified by the Hearthstone Institute.
