RE:Visual arts
Thank you for opening this forum, here is a tool I found to be very helpful.
A Pocket Guide to Arts Activities for People with Dementiahttp://collective-encounters.org.uk/wp-content/uploads/2014/02/Arts-and-Dementia-Toolkit.pdf I would be interested in hearing from others about what other toolkits are out there for art activities.
