A.D.A.P.T – A Dementia Program for Today

February 14, 2020

ADAPT is an exciting new initiative for people living with Dementia and their carers in Wynnum and surrounding suburbs.

With the support of the Brisbane City Council, this is a very affordable program that addresses a growing need in the community to help people living with Dementia and carers to live well now.

Studio Yellow based in Manly West aims to deliver high-quality art experiences to adults of all ages to promote good mental health through creativity. Every program includes Art Therapy techniques from absolute beginner levels to the more experienced.

Natalie Lynch, the owner of Studio Yellow has a passion for what she does after becoming a widow in 2009 when her husband lost his battle with depression.

Starting in February 2020, the program will provide a wonderful opportunity for people living with dementia, and/or their carers, to express their emotions and experiences through visual art. 

Research shows that creative expression plays an integral part in enhancing the well-being of people living with dementia. Engaging with art can actually help increase mobility, improve mood and attention span and reduce agitation, among many other symptoms!
