Early Stage Programs
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 performances of the Southwest Virginia Ballet or the Roanoke Symphony. Participants in Charlottesville may attend selected performances at the Paramount Theatre and special dramatic arts program offerings through its partnership with the University of Virginia Drama Department. A monthly music program is offered in Lynchburg.
