What People Say About the CLF Foundation 


Bev and Paul AllphinBev and Paul Allphin, Program Participants

"What captured my attention was the philosophy that everyone, regardless of their present situation, can produce lovely artwork, add to the story telling, and be included at every level.

"It is difficult to continue old friendships as dementia takes over, and that is understandable. Kind and positive leaders continue to make this a comfortable weekly time for us."

Jeffrey L. Cummings, M.D., Sc.D, Director, Cleveland Clinic Lou Ruvo Center for Brain Health 

"Families of patients in my practice often ask, 'What can I do to make my (loved one's) life better?' Creative Connections in Dementia Care has answers." 

Luanne & Bob Becker, Program Participants 

  "We build our Fridays around the Farrell Foundation art session because they are low-key and fun! It's a way for each of us to be creative and productive in a positive environment, and to be around folks we enjoy. Truly the best medicine for both of us!"


Gretty Myers, Board Member and Volunteer

"As a volunteer, I have an opportunity to bring a smile to someone's face. Time spent helping others know they are valued, cared for and supported in their journey is a privilege."

Melinda, Program Participant

"The CLF Foundation has made such a positive impact on me. It inspires me to think differently about my life and how I interact with other people. The insights I learn from the blogs, talking to Rev. Katie, and the journaling program give me hope and help me to help myself and the people I care about."

K.H., Program Participant

"Every time I leave here I feel better than when I came. I am a little more insightful and more compassionate towards myself."
