I have worked with seniors with varying degrees of dementia, I have gathered ideas and instructions that are appropriate for them.
Crafting and creating enriches their lives and brings smiles to their faces.

Be mindful and keep an individuals ability in your consideration of a project.
Currently more than 550 crafts are available.

"Any activity becomes creative when the doer cares about doing it right or doing it better." ~John Updike
