The Meadowlark Memory Program is collaborating with the Marianna Kistler Beach Museum of Art. Twice a month an Education Assistant will conduct a session of Visual Thinking Strategies (VTS). This will be a facilitated discussion of three different art images with joint participation by memory care receivers and caregivers.
A program led by the Marianna Kistler Beach Museum of Art for a terrific way to de-stress, improve fine motor skills and socialize with friends. Together, participants and class facilitators develop new skills or revisit old ones while engaging in various art making activities (i.e. watercolor, collage). This program is offered free of charge through the Meadowlark Memory Program to people throughout the Flint Hills region.
Classes lead the participant through guided imagery to focus his or her mind on an object, thought or activity to achieve a mentally clear and emotionally calm state. Aromatherapy may be used. No prior experience or knowledge of mediation is required.
Group discussion that relates to challenges of a caregiver and ways to cope with the daily struggles of providing care to a loved one with memory and/or cognitive changes. This group is facilitated by a licensed Social Worker.
