Press release from: PRMG

Bay Shore, NY – ADRC’s Executive Director and CEO, Mary Ann Malack-Ragona, announced today that twenty-seven sites across Nassau and Suffolk will participate in the Center’s 2013/2014 Art Expression Program developed for individuals with a diagnosis of Alzheimer’s Disease.

ADRC has been coordinating this very special program since 2003. The program includes training for professional coordinators, with ongoing support throughout the program year. The program culminates with ADRC’s Annual Tea and Art Exhibit where the paintings created by the Alzheimer’s artists are on display. Family friends and relatives are invited to the Annual event, and the event is open to the public.

“It is always amazing to see the completed artwork because in many cases our Alzheimer’s artists are unable to verbalize but are able to put their thoughts, feelings and emotions into their artwork,” states Ms. Malack-Ragona. Ms. Malack-Ragona further states, “The purpose of the Art Expression Program is to stimulate the mind through creation, and strengthen self-esteem and relationships.” Individuals participating in the program work in small groups and in a non-judgmental environment where process is more important than the finished product.

Sites participating in the 2013-2014 program are: Amber Court Assisted Living, Westbury, NY, The Amsterdam at Harborside, Port Washington, The Arbors at Islandia East, Islandia, Atria Bay Shore, Atria East Northport, Atria, Huntington, The Bristal at Lynbrook, The Bristal at Massapequa, The Bristal at North Hills, The Bristal at East Northport, The Bristal at North Woodmere, Broadlawn Manor, Amityville, Centerlight Healthcare Day Health Center, Amityville, Cold Spring Hills Adult Day Program, Woodbury, Good Samaritan Nursing Home, Sayville, Gurwin Jewish-Fay J. Lindner Residences, Commack, Harbor House Assisted Living, Oyster Bay, Nesconset Center for Nursing and Rehab, Nesconset, Oyster Bay Manor, St. Johnland Nursing Center, Kings Park, Somerset Gardens, Plainview, Sunrise Senior Living of East Meadow, Sunrise Senior Living of Plainview, Sunrise Senior Living of Smithtown, Sunrise Senior Living of West Babylon, Town of Huntington Adult Day Care, Waters Edge at Port Jefferson for Rehabilitation and Nursing.
