Artists of all ages and skill levels will collaborate on a four-day project to paint a “memory” mural at The Mansions at Sandy Springs Assisted Living & Memory Care from August 22-28. Open to the public, the art project is designed to bring residents, family, and members of the general community together in a fun and meaningful way, allowing for increased communication and understanding of issues that arise from the challenges of dementia.
The project will be led by nationally recognized artist Colleen Koziara, CEO of Beyond Bingo, a company created to engage seniors in ways that honor independence, individuality, and creativity. The project, called Murals to Remember, provides intellectually stimulating engagement programming that helps seniors reconnect with their sense of purpose, capability, pride and accomplishment.
The mural painting project is part of management partner, Solvere Senior Living’s wellness philosophy program called “Valeo™.” Latin for “to thrive,” Valeo creates wellness initiatives for those with memory impairments and incorporates activities to enhance social, intellectual, spiritual and physical well-being. The program supports residents and families as they age and is an integral part of Solvere’s care philosophy.
