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.
