NY Memory Center Brings Life to Dementia Patients

Since she has been coming to the New York Memory Center she doesn't need an anti-anxiety pill, and she doesn't need an antidepressant. I feel like every single person here is an angel.

Under the leadership of Executive Director Christopher Nadeau, the New York Memory Center (NYMC) using a unique arts and computer based social day care program brings dementia patients back into the world.

In the video below you will hear from a woman who moved from an emotional state of hopelessness and enormous burden to a state of Joy.

If you are or have been an Alzheimer's caregiver, I suggest you watch this video closely from the 4 minute mark to the 4 minute 30 second mark. Then share the video.

If you watch the complete video you will learn more about this wonderful program including how it brought a mother living with dementia back to her daughter.

The New York Memory Center uses arts and computers to help patients stay as independent as possible. This is truly a state of the arts social day care program that enlivens not only persons living with dementia, but also their families.

The New York Memory Center is a non-profit organization and as a result of the devastation of hurricane Sandy in the New York area is currently in need of donations. If you can help please consider a donation.
