What is Memories in the Making™?

Memories in the Making is a fine arts program for people living with Alzheimer’s disease or other dementia. People with or without an art background participate to produce beautiful, meaningful works.In the process of creating art they boost their self-esteem and open channels of communication with their loved ones.

Twenty Memories in the Making sites are embedded in residential and adult day service programs throughout Santa Clara, San Mateo, San Francisco and Contra Costa Counties. The program is offered by the Alzheimer’s Association of Northern California and Northern Nevada, and is free of charge.

You can help support this and other Alzheimer’s Association community programs by making a donation online or by attending our Memories in the Making Art & Wine Auction.
