Scrapbooking and Alzheimer's

Did you know that September is World Alzheimer's Awareness Month? 

Did you know that scrapbooking is used with patients to help remember past events in their lives, people from their past and present and to assist the care givers with info into the patients lives as a means to communicate with the patient, to understand where they are coming from?

Photographs from the past allow patients to reminisce about pleasant times in their lives. Photographs from the present help patients relate to their current situation. The patient experiencing memory loss is able to remember or recognize someone they love and know in a world where so many things are now unfamiliar to them.

With assistance, patients with Alzheimer’s disease can create scrapbook photo albums. Creating an album is a meaningful activity. The patients identified each other, had a starting point for further discussion, and generally found the albums relaxing.  Some Alzheimer’s patients use a camera and journal to chronicle and remember events. This activity helped those patients track and review their daily lives.

Studies have shown that scrapbook photo albums can be an important part of a patients therapy. In doing so, they will preserve the past, enrich the present and inspire hope for the future.

Green Haven Retreat and Picture This

On September 1, Green Haven Retreat became part of Picture This.  The joining of these two businesses is a perfect match and will give Picture This opportunities to do larger events and much more.

For those of you who don't know about Green Haven Retreat, here are a few facts:

Green Haven Retreat was built with the crafter in mind.
Everything is on one floor with a place to create, places to relax and eat, and a place to sleep.
The building is located right behind Picture this.
The retreat can accommodate 16 people in 4 separate bedrooms with 4 single beds in each room (no bunks) and a bathroom in each room. 
The craft room seats 16 people with a 6 foot table and adjustable chair for each guest.  
The dining room seats all 16 guests.
The craft room is on the opposite end of the sleeping area for those late night crafting sessions.

Check out this link to view the Green Haven Retreat website for full details.
