Early Stage Program

The Arts Fusion Early Stage Program provides opportunities for persons in the early stages of Alzheimer's and related dementias, and their caregivers, to participate in cultural art programs.  Through partnerships with regional organizations, Arts Fusion offers monthly docent-led discussions of museum and gallery exhibits. These social outings are modeled on the nationally recognized museum-based program Meet Me at MoMA. 

In addition, persons with dementia and caregivers participating in Arts Fusion’s Early Stage Program in Roanoke may attend selected Roanoke Symphony Orchestra rehearsals. Charlottesville’s Early Stage Program offers quarterly dramatic arts programs through its partnership with the University of Virginia’s Drama Department.
