School of Wisdom

School of Wisdom is a part of the Foundation.  It offers five-star service with love.  It's a place to help the elders who are mild dementia.

By chatting with each other, playing games, singing and creating, the Foundation tries to keep elders' memory and brains running to avoid degeneracy.  So, there are 4 therapies for them to choose: Reminiscence, Cognitive, Music, and Art. Let's follow The Ping-He Doves and the Foundation CEO, Ms. Chan Li-Ju, to know School of Wisdom better.


What’s More

School of Wisdom is a school set for elders with mild dementia.  There are Reminiscence therapy, Cognitive therapy, Music therapy, and Art therapy. One semester includes 10 weeks, and each week contains one class for a therapy.  The therapies offer chances for dementia elders to improve their interpersonal relationship.  They also help to maintain their current abilities to delay degeneracy.

Ms. Chan gave us a tour of School of Wisdom.  The Foundation has spent much time and human resources on the therapies.  But it is worth, because it is successful in delaying dementia.

We had a visit to School of Wisdom. The volunteers decorated the classroom old-day-like to recall the elders’ memory.  We knew the purpose of setting School of Wisdom, difference therapies, and learning effects.  I strongly feel enthusiasm of Ms. Chan and the volunteers’ to the elders.

School of Wisdom was formed by A Skin-Graft With Love Foundation to help dementia elders.  I was impressed by the creative items which made by the dementia elders and displayed in the classroom.

Among the therapies, I was interested in Music therapy.  The students made their own musical instruments by using different materials.  When the works were completed, they sang and danced happily with their instruments.  They were very happy.

School of Wisdom is not only a school providing therapy to reduce brain degeneracy, but also the support of dementia's family.  A Skin-Graft With Love Foundation devoted their manpower, financial strength and material resources to take care of the elders.  From visiting School of Wisdom, we see the great friendliness of society.
