The MoMA Alzheimer’s Project, which opens access to this magnificent cultural treasure to people with dementia and their families, now has a guide for museums interested in replicating their program.
You can download the Guide for free, thanks to support from the MetLife Foundation.
This marks a really exciting shift in the field. Rather than create a parallel universe of support for people with dementia and their families, we are now starting to open up real life to them. Art museums and cultural institutions are just the beginning of the mainstreaming of dementia. May it happen quickly and well.
