Katie Kiehn is an art therapist and artist who coordinates Expressions: Early Stage Memory Loss Program at Lutheran General Hospital in Des Plaines, IL. Expressions is a program for people with the earliest stages of Alzheimer's disease and related dementias. The program provides a safe, positive, strengths-based environment that allows participants to learn, share, and engage together. Components of the program include camaraderie, support, physical activity, mental exercises, creative expression, and education regarding memory loss. Activities are designed to encourage members to use their brains in novel ways to enhance memory and foster fun and engagement with others who are experiencing the realities of living with memory loss.
