Remember your mother scolding you for writing on the walls? At two memory care communities several hundred miles apart, residents, their family members and staff are encouraged to draw and paint brightly colored tulips and spring flowers on the walls of their neighborhoods.

The Create and Compose program, of which the mural project is a part, capitalizes on the therapeutic benefits that art and music offer to memory-challenged residents.
