Art Therapy for Dementia Patients

In 2014, ideastream’s Be Well team embarked upon a six month news and information series dedicated to exploring the challenges of caregiving and the problems they pose for families in Northeast Ohio. The series explores problems encountered by local caregivers involved in providing direct hands-on care for family members, as well as issues related to finding and administering outside agencies and workers to manage a loved one’s care. As part of the series, Health Intern Kara Riccardi highlights a local art care program which helps to not only improve the lives of those suffering from dementia, but the lives of their caregivers as well.
