Methuen Village launches ‘PhotoVoice Project’

METHUEN - Methuen Village announced the opening of The PhotoVoice Project, a distinctive exhibit featuring the photographs and writing of older adults living in the community’s assisted living and Compass Memory Support neighborhoods.

The opening reception for the exhibit is Thursday, Nov. 13 from 4-6 p.m. at Methuen Village, 4 Gleason St. The public is invited to attend to view the works and will have an opportunity to meet the artists.

The PhotoVoice Project was developed by several researchers at the University of Michigan to enable individuals with disabilities to identify, represent and articulate aspects of their lives by working with cameras to capture images of interest and then giving meaning to those images through words.

Senior Living Residences, the Boston-based company which manages the daily operations of Methuen Village and created Compass Memory Support, is the first assisted living company in the United States to adapt this program for individuals living with different types of dementia.

Exhibiting the work at the end of the six-week project in a public space creates a forum for dialogue, awareness and solidarity with individuals living with memory loss who are often isolated and misunderstood by society.
