Art & Alzheimer's Programs

​Offering free programs at the Cape Cod Museum of Art

In partnership with the Alzheimer's Family Support Center

Every Friday from 2:00 - 3:30 PM

MEET ME AT THE MUSEUM

FRIDAY IS MY DAY: ART FOR ALZHEIMER’S

Free Creative Programs

For People with Cognitive Loss and their Caregivers

Fridays from 2:00 – 3:30

 

Despite cognitive loss, the ability to respond to the arts can still be appreciated on an emotional level.  Art and music can act as gateways to stories and memories. In fact, research shows that art can help stimulate memory, enhance conversation and build a sense of inclusiveness among individuals with dementia.

Community partners, Cape Cod Museum of Art and Alzheimer’s Family Support Center invite people with memory impairment and their caregivers to “meet us at the museum” for a series of free weekly programs. Every Friday, there’s something new to experience as participants engage not only with art, but also with other members of the group in a warm, caring, supportive environment.  Attend as many, or as few events, as you want.  Although these free Fridays are not “drop off” programs, they are “drop-in” opportunities for caregivers and those they care for to bond with their peers and get in touch with their creative side. So come join the fun!
