Teaching & Learning
AT THE ACADEMY
Founded on the notion of an academy as a centre of learning, the Wellness Academy provides opportunities for personal growth and discovery through creative activities, such as education and learning, artistic expression, discussion, intergenerational learning, and movement
The program focuses on relationships and participant expression of self through movement and art. Intergenerational learning and arts-based programs focus on discovery and growth in an environment free from assessment and judgement. Compassionate relating is the foundation for multiple activities directed at discovery, living in the moment, and enjoyment.
In addition to providing service to persons with memory loss, their families and care partners, the Wellness Academy conducts research on best practices in care for persons with Alzheimer’s disease and other memory-related disorders. It is our hope that with continued research and implementation of research findings, we are able to help participants maintain their highest possible quality of life.
