Early and middle-stage memory care/dementia. 

Supply materials, explain how to use/mix paints and be on hand to offer support if needed. 

If a person is reluctant to take part, leaving a brush and page in front of them can often lead to the person picking it up and engaging after a while of watching others paint.

Late-stage memory care/dementia.

Use hand over hand assistance if this is possible.

Watching others paint is a nice activity as a passive observer if the person is not able to participate actively.

Hint: Don’t forget to paint the background.
