Art and Dementia

This free program is available for visitors living with dementia and their family member, carer or support worker.

The person-centred format provides participants with a dementia-friendly community experience based around reminiscence, validation and socialisation. A creative activity accompanies art viewing and aims to further enhance social interaction, well-being and mood. The small-size program incorporates specially designed components to support independence and function.

Subject to availability and program capacity. The program is suitable for people with dementia living at home, attending community and day respite groups or residential aged care groups.
