CREATIVE MINDS CARE

A world where Alzheimer's is nothing but a memory

Our mission is to live in a world without neurodegenerative diseases through the promotion of brain health and advancement of research.

OUR STORY

Our Story

Creative Minds Care, a 501(c)(3) organization, was created with the simple desire to live in a world without Alzheimer's Disease. We are a collective of creative individuals that are on a mission to raise funds for research and solutions for various causes, tackling multiple issues through the vehicle of one social enterprise.  Yet at the heart of it all, is eliminating Alzheimer's disease and other brain diseases like Lewy Body Dementia and Parkinson's, and reducing the risk of dementia.  As the organization is run by passion and a few core members, it keeps overhead expenses at a minimum so that 100% of all donations go towards advancing research and the promotion of brain health.

Unearthing Treasures

2024

POTTERY STUDIO IN ASHEVILLE, NC

Creative Minds Care presents Unearthing Treasures at Odyssey Clayworks, a transformative pottery workshop crafted for individuals in the early stages of Alzheimer's. This initiative offers participants the opportunity to take free workshops, fostering therapeutic and enriching experiences through the art of pottery. 

* A 2020 NIH study indicates pottery may benefit those with dementia, promoting enjoyment, creativity, and well-being. Recent research in the American Academy of Neurology Journal found that engaging in artistic activities in middle and old age reduces memory and cognitive problems by 73%, with craft-based activities reducing cognitive issues by 45%.
