Sometimes you just find something really Interesting
Kudos to the Mobile Museum of Art for thinking outside of the box. Although what else would one expect from an Art Museum!
Located in Mobile, Alabama, the Mobile Museum of Art is offering a creative program for adults with Alzheimer’s disease and their caregivers. Called Keepsake, the program is meant to add meaning to the lives of those living with early stage dementia and Alzheimer’s disease.
The museum offers the tours on Mondays for small groups (reservations in advance are required). Mondays is when the museum is usually closed. These Monday tours are free of charge to the participants which can include family members and caregivers. The point of the Keepsake program is to connect with creative thinking and imagination of those with dementia. The creative mental skills are often still functioning even though language and short term memory are affected by the early stage dementia. We hope to hear an update about how this program works. It sounds like a wonderful idea! Again, Kudos!
