Methow Creative Aging Memory Care Café at The Confluence Art gallery is a
program for adults living with dementia and their care partners that offers an opportunity
for social and expressive engagement in a setting that is designed to promote
confidence and inspire joy in participants. The Cafe hosts hands-on artmaking along
with music and art discussions that meet all involved where they are with love and
acceptance in a sensory sensitive environment.
These free, community-based arts programs for persons living with dementia and their
care partners hold tremendous potential for reducing isolation, increasing cognitive,
social, and creative engagement while improving overall quality of life.
Maximum of 6-10 participants.
