Expressive therapy

Just researched a bit about expressive therapy: the use of music, art, and story telling to help folks with dementia have a higher quality life. For me I understand higher quality to mean more woven into life. This study says to me there is that creativity of God in all of us, and it might not show for dementia people because they are in enforced do nothing mode. And because we fail them by thinking that trouble thinking one way means trouble thinking in all ways.
