Did you know that making art improves your physical and mental well-being? Research from 1994, provided by Dr. Gene Cohen, a medical doctor who held a Ph.D. in gerontology, established that a daily dose of creativity helps combat fatigue, high blood pressure and feelings of isolation and improves your general health!
In 2007 Dr. Cohen created Making Memories Together, an old-fashioned board game to improve the mood, level of engagement and ability to share stories for all. Although originally designed as a research project for patients with Alzheimer’s Disease, Making Memories Together is a great game to play with loved ones, whether or not they are experiencing cognitive changes. Dr. Cohen passed away in 2009, and his family selected Assisting Hands to preserve and share part of his extensive scientific legacy by giving away these fun and healthful games for FREE!!! Please contact me to get your game.

I’m not sure how we entered a space where the same few platitudes are thrown about, seemingly every other sentence. Counting how many times you see words like normalize, robust, engage, or deliverables, used in our corporate lexicon can lead to the most intense interoffice game of bingo this side of Cordell Ave. Words, are powerful. Words have meaning. Words have impact. And there’s nothing more impactful than hearing vibrancy in the context of downtown. Vibrancy is often used when speaking of outdoor spaces. However, its usage must become more than the latest platitude; Vibrancy has to become a call to action. For instance, Bethesda Urban Partnership answered the call to help by creating the Streetery, a broad collaborative effort to sustain businesses during the pandemic. That’s Vibrancy.
