Dr. Guy Proulx
The Aging Brain: How Art and Design are Changing the Way We Care

Dr. Guy Proulx is the Director of Psychology at Baycrest, one of the world's premier academic health sciences centers focused on aging. He specializes in the assessment and rehabilitation of cognitive disorders in people who have brain damage.
Dr. Proulx will share how art is a gift providing light and creativity taking dementia out of the darkness of pathology. In his words, 'Memory has evolved as a wonderous time traveling machine that allows us to recapture the past or imagine possible futures. The power of art and environmental design can do much to reduce excessive disability associated with the aging brain and its related diseases. Confused minds are too often the results of disabling environments and crippling attitudes.'
