There is not much research or work done with individuals with Alzheimer’s Disease and Art Therapy. There are many benefits of using this form of therapy with someone who has a disease of the brain. Art Therapy strengthens the skills that are still strong or present and also paves way for socialization. Creativity and imagination are still present and even though the art may retreat back to that of a child, they are still living and capable of connecting to their imagination.
