People with dementia and their caregivers

An art museum in the Netherlands, the Kunstmuseum Den Haag, launched a program called "Kunstconnectie" (Art Connection) specifically for people with dementia and their caregivers.

The program uses art to connect people with dementia and their caregivers by sparking conversation and emotions.

Here are the key points:

  • Trained museum guides lead tours on the last Friday of each month.

  • Each tour focuses on a different theme, like color or nature.

  • The goal is to use art to create a shared experience for people with dementia and their caregivers.

  • This program is part of a larger effort in the Netherlands to improve care for people with dementia.
