Creativity is a lifeline for me. Does having a creative mind help you avoid Alzheimer's? Some research has shown that musicians' brains are more resilient because of the additional neural networks formed while learning their craft.
Are there other art forms that may provide this same resilience for those who are not musically inclined? Thankfully, there may be. Writing, painting, drawing, sculpting, and dancing are options that may improve our cognitive health.
An art kit specially designed for people living with Alzheimer's may give caregivers some peace while also allowing your loved one to express themselves creatively. Lola's Art Kit has the supplies and prompts to facilitate drawing, sculpting, and writing.
Spending time on a creative passion, no matter your age, is an excellent investment in your cognitive health. The bonus is you and your loved one can participate together!
