An Open Heart is an Open Mind

Albert Einstein once said “A mind that opens to a new idea never returns to its original size.” Opening Minds through Art (OMA) is a collaborative art program between Cedar Village and the Scripps Gerontology School at Miami University aimed at promoting the social engagement, autonomy, and dignity of people with dementia through creative self-expression. OMA's mission statement "to build bridges across age and cognitive barriers" is founded on the fact that people with dementia are capable of expressing themselves creatively.

 

Group sessions utilize trained staff members and volunteers on a one-to-one basis with residents to build close relationships with people with dementia. The end of the art-making sessions culminates with a dinner and a gallery exhibition with the artists celebrating their accomplishments while educating the public about the creative capacitates of people with dementia through their artwork.

 

Your donation will help purchase art supplies for our talented artists.

A full schedule of activities is offered, including, but not limited to jewelry making, ceramics, exercise, Wii bowling, bell choir, music therapy sessions. Additionally, the Cedar Village Choir has been practicing weekly with the Cedar Village music therapist for a special concert on March 29, in which they will perform songs from movies made between 1939-1973, such as The Wizard of Oz, Pinocchio, Singin’ in the Rain and several more.

All Cedar Village programming is made possible through monetary and in-kind donations. Your support goes towards the high quality programs, special events, and activities Cedar Village is proud to offer our residents.

Purple Shirts, Big Hearts

Our Senior volunteers make a difference.

The Cedar Village residents enjoy volunteering and giving back to their community. Many of our residents, average age 80 and older, were active community volunteers before moving to Cedar Village. Our senior volunteer program allows those individuals to continue their volunteer work throughout retirement. Individuals who are unfamiliar with volunteering, but want to start are always welcome, because at Cedar Village we believe it is never too late to do good for the community.  

Our senior volunteers take a collaborative approach in planning their weekly projects and monthly outings. They travel to community organizations, such as the Ronald McDonald House, Crayons to Computers, group homes for individuals with developmental disabilities, and local homeless shelters. They always wear their purple shirts and their smiles while sharing stories and bonding with the individuals they are serving. We are proud of our senior volunteers and the difference they make in the community.
