- Art without Boundaries Program helps dementia patients at Rockland Place find their memories

Until Donna Teleis, a certified Art Without Boundaries therapist brought the innovative program to Rockland in June of 2011. “It is not art therapy but rather a psychological process,” said Teleis. The unusual form of therapy uses everyday pleasures such as singing, movement, painting and storytelling in a unique combination to stimulate dramatic changes in the brain.
