“Virtual Perspectives” offers an intergenerational opportunity for individuals with dementia, their care partners and students to visit virtually the world-class works which are currently featured at the Hood Museum. Looking at art is an activity that can be especially enjoyable and beneficial to those with Alzheimer’s disease and other forms of dementia. Art-viewing utilizes areas of the brain unaffected by the disease; it can stimulate thoughts, reactions, and emotions with minimal reliance on recent memory.
This program is presented in collaboration with D-H Arts Program and the Hood Museum of Art.
Note: Both the care partner and the person with dementia should register.
