An estimated 5.8 million Americans of all ages are living with Alzheimer’s Disease. This number includes an estimated 5.6 million people age 65 and older and approximately 200,000 individuals under age 65 who have early-onset Alzheimer’s.
For the individuals experiencing Alzheimer’s and their family members, day one of diagnosis marks the start of an uncertain road – but not a road without hope.
Arts and Minds is a nonprofit organization convinced that people of all ages and conditions can produce beauty and engage with life in their own unique way.
Arts & Minds is committed to improving quality of life for people living with Alzheimer’s Disease and other dementias through engagement with art. Their programs empower people with Alzheimer’s, family members, caregivers and educators to strengthen their social and emotional bonds by engaging with art. They offer art classes and partner with museums to provide programs of all kinds for individuals living with Alzheimer’s and other dementias.
