What’s Your Money Message to Your Grandkids?

We're all products of our family's financial legacy. My grandfather used to save pennies and not tell my grandmother.

I learned from him, and from my grandmother, too. ...

The Farrell Foundation Offers Arts Enrichment for People with Dementia/Alzheimer’s

The grand opening of The Farrell Foundation’s Center for Artful Living will be held Sat., May 5 from 2-5 p.m. in Westlake.

The foundation was established in 2011 and offers arts enrichment opportunities to individuals affected by Dementia/Alzheimer’s and their care partners.

The grand opening and ribbon cutting will feature an art exhibit, refreshments, music and other activities. The Center for Artful Living, Home of the Carolyn L. Farrell Foundation is located at 26633 Detroit Road, Westlake.

The Carolyn L. Farrell Foundation was created when the Farrell Family saw a need in the community. In caring for Carol, a wife and mother, the family learned there were few activity-based programs for people living at home with dementia/Alzheimer’s. They wanted to bring programming to the community in order to help support people’s treatment plan and management of their illness.

The center’s programs are largely arts-based and focus on multi-sensory elements because art imagination, the use of the senses are areas of the brain that are preserved abilities well into the disease process of dementia.

It is often assumed that people with dementia cannot participate in daily life anymore, and that is not true. People with dementia can create, imagine, and have fun. Most importantly, isolation is a large contributing factor to increasing the pain and difficulty of having dementia. The foundation’s programs are designed to decrease isolation and increase socialization with community support.
