Good Morning California!
A couple of weeks ago, I discovered a Kickstarter campaign that really inspired me, entitled AGELESS ART.
Local Hollywood, CA resident and filmmaker Noah Applebaum’s grandfather, Harold Applebaum, lived with dementia. Instead of being heartbroken Noah became inspired by the new OMA programs that he discovered. He is honoring Harold, and the need for a new perspective on elder care, by attempting to help other men and women who suffer from this degenerative disease and who every day lose a little bit more control of their own lives.
And so, Noah is making a film about creative arts programs for people with dementia which then transforms their art pieces into cinema. Part doc, part movie.
Today I got an update by way of a new video that captured a truly special moment.
This is Marge. She has Alzheimer’s and is enrolled in an adult day service program. One of the activities offered is Opening Minds through Art (OMA), where seniors with dementia paint and create abstract art. While showing off her painting called “HodgePodge”, Marge spoke candidly about life and was gracious enough to sing a song from her youth!
Can I count on you? If ever there was a vision worth supporting this is it. For our mothers and fathers, grandmothers and grandfathers, aunts and uncles, friends and spouses.
