«Alzheimer's doesn't take away memory, your memories are all in there. The part of the brain that's damaged is the part that gives you access to memory. It's as if you put the memories in the glove compartment and you lost the key and the art unlocked it.»
-Dr. John Zeisel, president of Hearthstone Alzheimer Care, and founder of the I'm Still Here® Foundation

Dr. John Zeisel, one of the earliest innovators of positive care for people living with Alzheimer's, will discuss his I'm Still Here person-centered approach, his life's work in environmental design and research, the world-wide impact of MoMA's Meet Me project, and the encouraging changes occurring in the face of this devastating disease.

Carnegie Museum of Art, The Andy Warhol Museum, and museums around the world welcome people living with Alzheimer's and dementia into their galleries. Many of these thoughtful programs, including CMOA's In the Moment tours, grew from New York City's Museum of Modern Art's innovative Meet Me model, supporting the idea that art is the catalyst for creating meaningful experiences for everyone. Participants, care partners, family members, and museum staff have looked, laughed, and shared life stories by making connections with works of art and each other in a social and inviting atmosphere.
