Alzheimer patient class at Albany Institute
Art Connects is back at the Albany Institute with a program is designed for people affected with early to mid-stage Alzheimer’s and other cognitive deficits with their caregivers.
Visiting the museum and looking at paintings, sculptures, and artifacts may rekindle memories and emotions, are special social occasions, and lively outings for men and women who live with this disease. The Institute collections are used to renew and build social connections in which all can participate and enjoy. It does not require a background in art, nor does it rely on memory.
Participants will register for one-hour sessions that are offered on Tuesdays at 2 p.m. for no more than eight participants each session. Each session will give time to build relationships and a sense of community with the art and with each other.
Upcoming session dates are Nov. 14 at 2 p.m. and Nov. 28 at 2 p.m.
There is no fee for this tour program, but pre-registration is required.To register, call Maria Vann at (518) 463-4478, Ext. 404, or firstname.lastname@example.org
The museum is working to plan to possibly offer the Art Connects program once per month from March through June of 2018.
