Where Arts and Imagination Fuel the Mind

Our mission is to enrich the lives of families touched by brain issues and dementia.

Thinking of all of you as autumn begins in beauty and spirit.  We miss being at our Center but have been able to stay in touch with many of you but want to encourage many more to join us on our Zoom Conference sessions.  These are held on Tuesday and Friday at 2pm.  Email invitations are sent the previous day with instructions.  We have found that even though we are not together at the Center, it allows us to still connect and be engaged, enjoy a program led by our professionals and time to share thoughts and concerns.  If you are interested in joining us on Zoom, please email us at info@farrellfoundation.com or leave us a message at 440-414-0434.

About Us

The Farrell Family

The Carolyn L. Farrell Foundation for Brain Health was established in 2011 when the Farrell Family saw a need in the community. In caring for Carol, wife and mother, we found that there are few activity based programs for people living at home with dementia/Alzheimer’s. We wanted to bring programming to the community in order to help support people’s treatment plan and management of their illness. Our programs are largely arts based and focus on multi-sensory elements. The human senses centered in the brain preserve abilities well into the disease process.

It is often assumed that people with dementia can not participate in daily life activities anymore, and that is not true. When we create activities that are accessible, individuals thrive and find joy in the experience. People with dementia can create, imagine, and have fun.

Most importantly, isolation is a large contributing factor to increasing the pain and difficulty of having dementia. Our programs are designed to decrease isolation and increase socialization with community support.
