Maitland Regional Art Gallery offers engaging social tours of current exhibitions aimed specifically for people living with dementia and their carers. The tours are guided by a trained facilitator who uses artwork as the stimulus to encourage discussion and self-expression through conversation and art making, enabling visitors to express their thoughts and emotions.
Visitors gain intellectual stimulation and opportunities for further discussion between participants, carers and facilitators, all in a friendly and supportive environment.
Community days are generally the second Thursday at 10.30 am and last Tuesday at 1pm of each month, , bookings are essential to keep groups small and personal.
