Artist's Statement: As Alzheimer’s progresses, communication skills diminish. While visiting my sister in the dementia unit of her care facility, I was charmed by a resident of the unit. During an ice cream social, she was attempting to get two other residents to interact, to sit together and converse. Having difficulty herself in finding the right words she said “Well, you’re a people and she’s a people, you should, you know - people up”.

What a great idea, let’s People Up for Alzheimer’s Disease; you know, People Up for help, support, prevention and a cure!
