The mission of the Alzheimer's Poetry Project is to facilitate the creativity of people living with Alzheimer's disease and related dementia. We use classic, well-loved poems to connect with people living with dementia. We engage them in call and response performance and the poems serve as inspiration for the creation of their own original poetry. We do not set boundaries in our beliefs in what possible for people with memory impairment to create. By saying to people with dementia, we value you and your creativity; we are saying we value all members of our community.
