Morning Pointe of Powell (TN) resident Wilma Garrison and Lantern program director Amanda Falk proudly display the red, white, and blue tie-dyed shirt Garrison created in honor of Independence Day. Art therapy activities are an important feature of the assisted living and Alzheimer’s memory care community’s programming. “Although this was the first time our Lantern memory care residents had done a tie-dye activity in a while, it was so well-received that the residents now want to have a tie-dying party sometime soon,” Falk says with a laugh. “This is why art therapy is so important for residents in memory care—it gives them the opportunity for creative expression that many of them crave.”
