SeniorsPlus is offering two innovative programs for caregivers and adults living with dementia and Alzheimer’s disease: Opening Minds through Art (OMA) and Music & Memory.
Opening Minds through Art (OMA), a fine arts class for people with dementia, will be offered free of charge in Wilton, Norway, and Lewiston. Through a series of one-hour classes, OMA engages people living with dementia in creating abstract art, by relying on their imagination instead of memory. OMA strives to bring joy, art, and pride to people living with dementia and Alzheimer’s disease.
The classes will be presented from 1 pm – 2 pm as follows: Fridays, May 19 through June 23 at SeniorsPlus in Norway; and Fridays, July 14 through August 18 at SeniorsPlus in Lewiston. Wilton classes were held Fridays, March 24 through April 28. Contact us to be notified of future classes.

SeniorsPlus also continues to offer Music & Memory, an exciting, internationally-recognized, evidence-based program targeting caregivers and adults who have dementia and are aging in place at home.
Music & Memory is an exciting new evidenced-based community program that SeniorsPlus began offering in the spring of 2022. For individuals aging in place at home and their caregivers, research has shown that favorite songs provide respite, ease transitions and reduce caregiver stress. A growing body of research proves how personalized playlists change lives for the better.
