The Alzheimer's Association offers this section of the web site for community partners who offer programming that may be of interest to people living with dementia and to their family caregivers. The Chapter is not sponsoring or endorsing any of the programs but merely providing information. If you are interested in any of the programming in this section contact the presenting organization for questions regarding content, appropriateness, and any other matter.

here:now – Making Art Accessible to People with Dementia
Join us for the Frye Art Museum’s program for individuals with dementia and their care partners. here:now provides gallery discussion tours and art-making opportunities for those living with dementia to enjoy a creative and relaxing afternoon together.
Each month specially trained museum educators and gallery guides lead a discussion-based tour highlighting works of art from the Frye’s exhibitions. Conversation creates an exchange of ideas without relying on short-term memory or recall of art historical information. Tours also include in–gallery hands-on activities.

Art-making in the Frye Studio encourages experimentation with various media including watercolor paint, clay and collage. A short social time concludes each class.
