Hawkesbury Regional Museum is offering a free trial of its new program – mini Museum- for people living with dementia and their carers…
These travelling mini Museum boxes will provide a much needed service to people living with dementia and their carers across Hawkesbury. This program will allow participants to engage in multi-sensory activities and object handling that encourage learning, connection & cognitive stimulation, as well as reminiscence.
The first box, In the School Yard, will be made available for free to a select number of nursing homes, aged-cared facilities and community groups to gain vital feedback on the program. More boxes are due to be released from Summer 2022.
Who runs the session?: Museum staff
(future programs will also offer self-facilitated sessions)
Where is it held?: At your facility or the Museum
Recommended session size: Max. 10 people
