“With age comes beauty.” That’s the experience of seniors who live in Oakwood Common Retirement Community in Dearborn, which provides a variety of living options for seniors including assisted living for those with Alzheimer’s and dementia. These residents are taking part in a dynamic art program called, Meet Me @ the BBAC, sponsored by the Birmingham Bloomfield Art Center. This program provides a uniquely creative outlet for individuals living with early and mid-stage Alzheimer’s along with their caregivers. On the line with me is Shavon Baker, activities supervisor at Oakwood Common, and Annie VanGelderen, president and CEO of the Birmingham Bloomfield Art Center.
