Sharing the Past: A Program for Persons with Alzheimers

This program uses art to connect to past experiences for small groups of adults with Alzheimer’s or other forms of dementia. Participants see 4-5 original artworks in the gallery spaces and are encouraged to share their observations. These observations are then used as a springboard to stimulate recollection of stories and events from long-term memory. While one goal of the program is to give participants and their caregivers quality time together, a virtual museum experience may also provide the motivation for participants to use their more limited language skills. This program is modeled after an on-site program at this museum that has benefited persons with Alzheimer’s in our community for over eight years.
