Project Purpose

In light of the growing body of research supporting the benefit of using music to connect and engage persons living with this diagnosis, the Alzheimer Society of Thunder Bay will strive to make this information more widely known as well as accessible. 

The Alzheimer Society Music Project was created in response to overwhelming evidence showing the beneficial effects of music and stimulation on people living with dementia.

(re)Creating The Self Art Program

(re)Creating the self is a program designed for individuals living with dementia to spend a few hours exploring story-telling and observing the details of life in a variety of ways: through watercolour paints, collage, quiet reflection, sharing and writing. The art created during these sessions will be shown at a variety of locations throughout the city of Thunder Bay. This four week program is currently at the Thunder Bay Art Gallery.  The program had shown great success with its members: “It let’s your imagination come out” said one member, “It’s nice to be with others who are adjusting to a new way of life”.
