CLINICAL ART THERAPY & PERSONALIZED MUSIC

Our mission is to make a positive difference in the lives of individuals

living with cognitive, mental, developmental or physical challenges

as well as those that love and care for them.

®

We do this by providing easy access to a suite of high quality, field tested, therapeutic,

non-pharmacological programs, resources, education, training and services.

Our signature "4Life" programs are centered around the creative arts including clinical art therapy and personalized music.  The value of the arts in health and elder care grows daily for individuals with many different diagnoses in any environment. 

ArtTherapy4Life Program

is not an “arts and crafts” program used for distraction purposes; it is a dignifying, fine arts program used for self-expression that also allows memories to surface while stimulating brain activity.

"I Remember Better When I Paint" is the first international documentary about the positive impact of art and other creative therapies on people with Alzheimer's and how these approaches can change the way we look at the disease. A film by Eric Ellena and Berna Huebner, presented by French Connection Films and the Hilgos Foundation, and narrated by Olivia de Havilland. Among those who are featured are noted doctors and Yasmin Aga Khan, president of Alzheimer's Disease International and daughter of Rita Hayworth, who had Alzheimer's."

Personalized music rates #1 as the only stimulus that activates the entire brain.

Our most personal life experiences and memories, intertwined with our music, are "safely tucked away" in the last part of the brain affected by dementia. 

In October of 2014, Brian was diagnosed with Early-Onset Alzheimer’s Disease at the age of 54. He provides a window into the experiences of a “regular guy” from a “regular life” as he goes along his Alzheimer’s journey. Brian is "living well" with Alzheimer's and leans on the profound impact that his personalized music playlist has on his life.              

Our programs and resources check lots of boxes.
