How can you tell if your loved one, who’s getting cranky and forgetful is depressed or has dementia? In 2013, former KBCS news director, Sonya Green, spoke with Mary Lou Brown, a caregiver to her husband who was diagnosed with dementia in 1996. Mary and her husband also tapped into a resources at the Frye Art Museum in Seattle, in addition to activities like chess and harp.

Sonya Green also interviews Mary Jane Knecht, Manager of Adult Programs at Frye Art Museum in Seattle, about the museum’s here-now program, an arts engagement program for people with dementia and their caregiver.
