— “Last week, on NPR’s program, Fresh Air With Terri Gross, the topic was “Dementia Reimagined: Can There be Happiness for Those With Memory Loss”, A New Approach To Dementia.

ARTZ Philadelphia permits those with dementia and their care partners to engage in a fun activity together, and leave the dementia diagnosis at the door. Yes, there can be happiness for those with dementia. We simply need to invest in such activities.
