Opening Minds Through Art Offered to Sholom Residents
Opening Minds through Art (OMA) is an award-winning, evidence-based, intergenerational art-program for people with Alzheimer’s disease
Do you desire to make a difference in the lives of people with memory loss? People suffering from Memory loss diseases can often feel alone and afraid. Building genuine friendships with them can make all the difference. In OMA the resident works on their art piece, when using their creative part of their brain they come alive in conversation. As a volunteer, you visit with them and gentle guide them through the steps of the project.
OMA is a great way to connect with people with dementia and as you engage in art-making together.

“On behalf of the Sholom Auxiliary, we are thrilled to see these beautiful works created by the residents participating in the Opening Minds Through Art Program on each campus. We extend thanks to the many donors who made this possible through an Auxiliary Fund-A-Need project and to the Association of Jewish Aging Services and the generosity of a private funder for their generosity. Creativity lasts a lifetime. Thank you for supporting these important efforts.”
