New Chapter




ARTZ is now a truly global group with its distinctive programs enhancing the lives of people living with Alzheimer's.

Artists for Alzheimer’s connects volunteer artists to people living with dementia. Since its inception in 2002, the program has worked with over sixty volunteer artists, ranging in age from eight to ninety-eight. The artists have shared more than just their talent; they have made profound emotional connections with participants. In turn, these artists have been given a glimpse of Alzheimer’s that much of society doesn’t see— that people with the disease are very much “alive” and can be awakened through creativity, compassion, and understanding.
