PROGRAMS AND ACTIVITIES

Activity Centre

Who is this catered to?

People living with dementia

AGI’s Activity Centre offers the person living with dementia engaging activities while their family member benefits from respite. The centre honours each participant as a unique person beyond the diagnosis.

 

Activities are tailored to individual abilities and offered in a caring, non-judgmental environment, enhancing the quality of life for those who attend. Programming focuses on providing participants with a sense of belonging, improved quality of life, a feeling of productivity and empowerment, an opportunity to participate in leisure activities, and social inclusion in interacting with their peers.

Art Therapy

Who is this catered to?

People living with dementia

AGI’s Art Therapy Program helps our participants meet their social and emotional needs through creative expression. AGI's knowledgeable and professional Art Therapists led the program and graduate-level interns from the Concordia University Department of Creative Arts Therapies.

For people living with dementia, creating art in a supportive environment helps promote effective coping that go hand-in-hand with the life changes that come with dementia. The program focuses on emotional well-being and quality of life rather than artistic achievement. AGI provides art therapy in our in-person and virtual activity programs according to participant needs and their capacity to benefit from the program.
