Memories in the Making® is a program of creative expression
for individuals with Alzheimer’s disease or other dementias.
In 1986, artist, board member and caregiver Selly Jenny,
whose mother had Alzheimer’s disease, explored the use
of an art program to identify how much dementia patients could
reveal about themselves through the medium of art.
Most had never painted before, yet the response was uniformly
positive, revealing and reaffirming.
The Memories in the Making® Art Program was thus born and
has grown into a calendar, a training manual, an art exhibit
and more -- expanding both nationally and internationally.
Now this program has been expanded to the Amarillo area
with the help of volunteer, Janis Ruff. Janis has been working
with several Alzheimer's facilities in the Texas Panhandle
to bring this program to our community.
Blondes vs. Brunettes is a volunteer-driven active event
for women that brings the passion and spirit of young
community leaders together to support the Alzheimer’s Association.
