Angie Hunt, Chief Operating Officer at The Cedars, brought her expertise and enthusiasm for therapeutic arts to the Indiana State Department of Health Conference this fall. Cutting edge arts programming has made a big difference for dementia patients at The Cedars. Opening Minds Through Art, a new collaboration with students from the Maine College of Art and the University of Southern Maine Occupational Therapy department, and our ongoing Music and Memory program, are two of the ways The Cedars reduces the need for antipsychotic medications and increases quality of life.
Angie shared ways for other facilities to develop similar programs and ensure their sustainability and success.
