DEMENTIA ART PROJECT
I have been teaching my Grannie to paint ever since she was diagnosed with vascular Dementia and Alzheimer's disease in the summer of 2016. This painting is her biggest art project and features all of Grannie's favourite garden birds. Having not painted since she was at school, she is incredibly proud of what she can do. This sense of achievement is so important for people with dementia as their independence is unfairly reduced with the progression of the condition. Grannie and I would therefore like to share these birds in the hope that they spread awareness, change perceptions and also raise some money for the charity that provides so much support to so many families - Alzheimer's Society.
Greetings cards are available to purchase, and other products featuring these birds can be purchased through Redbubble and all of the profits will be donated to Alzheimer's Society.
