Giving a voice to seniors through music - Rewind

Giving a voice to seniors through music
Rewind

I can still remember falling in love for the first time.

It was mid-November and the stars filled the sky.

Some things have changed like ebb and flow of tide,

But other things remain like who I am inside.

I am still who I used to be

With the same hope, same name, same eyes.

So, why do you treat me differently?

Re-imagining Dementia through the Arts Artwork now Online!

The Re-imagining Dementia through the Arts Artwork is now viewable on our website.

In this arts and community-based research project we brought persons with dementia, family members, visual and performance artists, and researchers together in a one-day workshop to explore the implications of the tragedy discourse for persons and families experiencing dementia and work with them to begin to create an alternative discourse.

Working collaboratively, eight visual and poetic expressions were created that reflect what persons with dementia want the world to know about them: despite loss and sadness they are supported by loving networks, embracing life, remaining active and engaged, breaking the silence, and transforming with new possibilities.
