Can drawing help With dementia symptoms?

By | May 9th, 2021

Drawing therapy is very underused. I don’t know why. I think we just forget it’s available to us. I love drawing therapy. I’m not an artist. First thing I tell patients is, “Don’t worry about it.” Surprisingly enough, oftentimes drawing can be very intact, especially at the beginning part of the progression and some of them surprise themselves at what they can draw. It indirectly may bring out more language. So I love doing art, I love doing graphics with color. It helps patients also know that there are creative and colorful sides that we can tap into.
