My Personal Story with Dementia Care

Lois Plitt Warren, MPS, ATR-BC, LCAT

Licensed Creative Arts Therapist, Psychotherapist, Board Certified Art Therapist, Art Educator

I always connected with my Dad through our love of art, but one day, I realized that art and a good hug were now our main pathways to communication.  My father was living with dementia, and with continued love and respect for him, so were my family and I.

Extensive experience providing therapeutic care for people with dementia, as an art therapist, consultant, and Director of Therapeutic Recreation, in assisted living facilities, social adult day centers, at LIAF, and in my private practice, prepared me to be an effective caregiver to my Dad.

As I witnessed my fatherís abilities decline, I also saw his strengths and the essence of his gentle, caring, wise, creative, and positive personality survive. As a daughter and a therapist, I built upon this light within him, and we sang, drew, painted and danced together for a long time.

The love of nature and color reflected in his beautiful copy of a Monet, painted during a healthier time, is evident in his later drawings and paintings. With the challenges of each new stage, I created appropriate art journals that would allow my father to continue to create. My written words or simple outlines would prompt his artistic and emotional responses. These art therapy experiences enhanced his cognitive awareness, personal interactions, and physical and emotional well-being.
