“Being a part of ARTZ Philadelphia serves multiple purposes for me. First, I have an opportunity to learn and help someone hold onto a part of themselves that may be slipping away. Secondly, I will become a resource for my family, friends and colleagues who are transitioning to care partners to their parents and other family members. Lastly, I have the desire to become an advocate for the dementia community.”
