Art for Alzheimer patients.

Art for therapy has always been very important in my life.  When I was a teenager and a young adult, I used art to help me get through tough times.  My art was how I expressed the difficulties I was going through.  Recently I have seen more and more people promoting the use of art for healing purposes.  This video on CNN shows how art is used to enrich the lives of people with Alzheimer.
